The Mainstage Productions continue to be key components in our educational mission, which is to provide opportunity and support for creative expression, intellectual development, and aesthetic appreciation for students, faculty, staff, and audience. Even in our current virtual environment, each show in this year’s varied season makes good on the department’s focus on Learn by Doing — comprehensive, hands-on training that gives students a balanced and enriched knowledge of performance, onstage and behind the scenes. 

2021-2022 Production Season
