The 2020-2021 University Theatre Season
Our previously announced Fall 2020-21 productions are changing and our faculty, staff, and students are working to put together a reconsidered series of productions.  We hope to announce our revised season plan by mid-August, though aspects may need to remain flexible in order to respond to the latest developments.   Our Spring 2021 selections may also be revised.  We look forward to presenting entertaining and thought-provoking productions this Fall, and we thank you for your patience.

Written by William Shakespeare and directed by Nancy Eddy

Hamlet, Shakespeare’s masterpiece, is the story of a young prince from Denmark searching for the proof that will clearly implicate his uncle, Claudius, for the murder of his father.  It is a tale of power, revenge, spying, betrayal, illusion, corruption, and murder. Is Hamlet driven forward by his fate or by the choices he makes?  This production will feature an actress in the role of Hamlet.
