October 19 - 21 & 26 - 29, 2023
Freimann Studio Theatre

Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in Larissa Fasthorse’s wickedly funny satire, as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month.

Freimann Studio Theatre

Two Truths and a Lie is a collection of dance-theater works built around the struggle for authenticity in our relationships. In a world dominated by branding and image-fixing, how do we actually know ourselves? More than that, how do we share that self without packaging it for promotion? This evening-length collection of witty, athletic, engaging works made by guest artist Alexandra Beller (NYC), in collaboration with students, serves to entertain, enlighten, and activate audiences. 



Studio Series

A Winter's Tale
Directed by Dr. Laura Hope

February 29 - March 3, 2024
Alexander Stage

The jealous king Leontes falsely accuses his wife, Hermione of infidelity, with his best friend, and she dies. Leontes exiles his newborn daughter Perdita, who is raised by shepherds for sixteen years and falls in love with the son of Leontes’ friend. When Perdita returns home, a statue of Hermione “comes to life”, and everyone is reconciled. Some critics consider it one of Shakespeare’s “problem plays” because the first three acts are filled with intense psychological drama, while the last two are comic and supply a happy ending. 

One Act Play Festival
Student directed, overseen by Professor Alex Higgin-Houser

May 2 - 5, 2024
Freimann Studio Theatre
