Our performances are a laboratory that is open to all community members.

What students learn in the classroom comes to life in our theaters.

Students work on mainstage performances, independent projects, scenes for classes, and more. Based on their level of interest and experience, they have the opportunity to act, direct, design, work as dramaturgs, serve as technicians and crew members, publicize, and more. They may start out in assistant positions on mainstage shows and may eventually take on primary responsibility; others choose to take on independent projects to do their hands-on learning. 

We welcome the campus, Five College and local community into our spaces as audience members, learners, and participants in theater.
