The 2019-2020 University Theatre Season 

Fall Comedy (Returning from our Summer Theatre tour) 

Ken Ludwig's A Fox on the Fairway 

Written by Ken Ludwig, Directed by Steve Berglund

A Fox on the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp, which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy members of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it's a charmingly madcap adventure about love, life, and man's eternal love affair with...golf.

Punk Rock

Written by Simon Stephens, Directed by Keeley Stanley-Bohn

Simon Stephens's tender, ferocious and frightening play is set in a private school outside of Manchester, England where a group of highly-articulate students flirt and posture their way through the day while preparing for their exams. With hormones raging and minimal adult supervision, the students must prepare for their future—and survive the savagery of high school. Punk Rock is an honest and unnerving chronicle of contemporary adolescence.

  • Includes violence and strongly mature themes and language 

Our Town 

Written by Thornton Wilder, Directed by Nancy Eddy

This Pulitzer Prize-winning play, described by Edward Albee as "…the greatest American play ever written," follows the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually – in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre – die. Our Town is an impassioned call to take notice of the beauty in small and everyday things.
