Current Productions

Each year, the Theatre Department produces six mainstage shows in the Allaert Auditorium of the Galvin Fine Arts Center and two Studio Theatre (black box) shows.

The mainstage productions include specialty shows – Fresh Face Revue and Senior Showcase – that highlight First-year and senior students. And two other shows are the culmination of classes offered every other year. The Coffeeshop Cabaret is part of the Intro to Music Theatre class and the Midnight Shakespeare production comes from the Advanced Acting class.

Take a look at what's going on this year and plan to come see us perform!

Past Theatre Productions

Drama, Musicals, Comedy, and One-Acts

We've got variety! Part of what you'll discover in Theatre at SAU is that you're encouraged to try a little bit of everything. That includes not only different acting parts, but also working backstage, creating and/or designing sets, running lights, directing, and more!
