Second Stage

Cabaret 204 & Special Events


In addition to our mainstage productions, UMass Theater proudly invites community members to investigate Cabaret 204, a new (free!) series of student-produced work. Produced on Studio 204, our low-tech performance space, the series is a venue for plays and performance art conceived, mounted and produced by students. Works include original scripts and adaptations by students, collections of short plays or scenes, cross-genre experimentation and explorations of theater's new directions. Come get a glimpse of what the new generation of theater artists are up to.

All performances, unless noted, will be held in Studio 204, Fine Arts Center, and are free and open to the public. Shows are open to the public but seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.


Presented in Studio 204:

Picasso at the Lapin Agile

by Steve Martin
directed by MacMillan Sott Leslie

Written by Steve Martin this play is hilariously funny, and surprisingly deep. Picasso, Einstein, and a mysterious Visitor meet in a bar in Paris in 1904. What follows is not only an absurdly funny story but also a profound look at what changed with the 20th century for better, or worse.

The show times and dates are as follows:
Wednesday November 13th at 7:00
Thursday November 14th at 7:00
Friday November 15th at 7:00


If you would like to order tickets online you can do so by e-mailing : 204tickets@gmail.com

Tickets may be available at the door but the space is small, and seating is limited so your best bet is to order them through e-mail.
