For more than 60 years, Whitman College students have graced the stages of this historic campus theatre with their talent and passion. Loves have been lost. Wars have been waged. Musicals, mysteries and comedies have enthralled audiences to the last curtain call.

COVID-19 restrictions meant performers and audiences could not be together at Harper Joy Theatre for the 2020-21 academic year. Yet, our creative students, faculty and guest artists brought audiences innovative offerings.

About Harper Joy Theatre
