Act II Season


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.


February 22 – 24, 2019

Penelope, wife of famed Odysseus, is the posterchild for the devoted, all-suffering wife. Now, she tells her side of the story: the truth behind the years she toiled away while Odysseus journeyed the world. Twelve maids chime in; demanding justice from the man who murdered them – the very same man Penelope waited for all those years.

In this timeless take on a hundred-year-old classic, Machinal tells the story of one young woman in an industrial, male-dominated society, living a life opposite of her hopes and dreams.
