For just over forty years, the School of Theatre has offered a vibrant and successful main stage season for the general public, which serves as a laboratory for our students. Our new Act II season will push our students beyond the rigors of a traditional canon to explore the experimental, cutting edge, and truly difficult. The choice of material will be more challenging either in its content, structure, or perhaps in its staging. In Act II, we will push the envelope and grow to the next level of professional theatre training.
All performances begin at 8pm in The Studio Theatre which is located in the Williams Building, near the intersection of Jefferson and Copeland Streets.
Adult Ticket: $5.00
Student Ticket: $5.00
Moon and Birdboot, two feuding theatre critics, arrive to watch the performance of a new mystery play that parodies the conventional Agatha Christie-style stage thriller. As the night progresses, the reality of the critics and the reality of the play blurs and the two worlds become inextricably mixed. The question then becomes, who is the real Inspector Hound?
Eugène Ionesco’s The Bald Soprano is a seminal work in the Theater of the Absurd. Throughout the Anti-Play, Ionesco charts the course of an evening for two middle-class families and manages to satirize us all. Throughout chaos, The Bald Soprano asks important questions of the meaning of life and language.
