Department of Theatre

2018- 2019 Season

Welcome to the 2018-2019 Season of USM Theatre!

 

Join us for a dynamic season, with something for everyrone!

Something old

            Something new

                        Something borrowed

                                    Something “Shue”…..

 

Our production of Tartuffe, originally produced in the year 1664 gets updated with a new twist!

A Winter Idyll…with Spring in sight is a newly created work featuring dance, music and the spoken word.

This year's musical collaboration with the School of Music, Unlock’d,  is borrowed from a poem by Alexander Pope.

Our final production is the comedy The Foreigner, by Larry “Shue”, which will leave you in stitches!

 

Special Events (Admission by cash donation at the door)

Join us in early September for the psychological thriller, The Turn of the Screw, previously performed by USM Theatre students

at Deertrees Theatre in the Summer of 2018.

 

Be sure to catch the Spring Department of Theatre Showcase in early May, which highlights the creative culmination

of our students’ Spring semester classwork.
