The 2020-2021 Theatre Season marks a turning point in our operations as a performing arts organization. While the conventional stage performances had to be canceled due to the Covid19 pandemic, the Department of Theatre will continue to share non-traditional performative exchanges to showcase the work of their students and faculty. Making use of experimental practices, they are tackling themes related to the immediate social and political challenges.  

Topics explored throughout this experimental season includissues of pandemic health and safety, racial justice, LGBTQIA+ advocacy, neurodiversity, the #MeToo movement, grassroots political activism, gun violence, the economy, and more.
