Presented in Studio 204 in Fall 2014:

Cancelled is the high-action story about a 1940’s radio show that suddenly gets cancelled, a self-absorbed, shady director, and  a crazed, revenge seeking sponsor that struggle to put together one last show of “Life in Barker’s Corners.” Stakes are high as jobs-and lives are on the line.

The show performs November 12-14 in Fine Arts Center Room 204

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.
