“Isaac’s Eye,” by Lucas Hnath                         
Oct. 6-8 and 13-14, 2023
Directed by Andy Callis                                 
Black Box Theatre

Lucas Hnath reimagines the contentious, plague-ravaged world a young Issac Newton inhabited in “Isaac’s Eye,” exploring the dreams and longings that drove the rural farm boy to become one of the greatest thinkers in modern science.


“Sense and Sensibility,” by Kate Hamill                     
Based on the novel by Jane Austen              
Nov. 10-12 and 17-19, 2023
Directed by Mary Job
Black Box Theatre

A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters – sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne – after their father’s sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable.


“The Thanksgiving Play,” by Larissa FastHorse          
Feb. 23-25 and March 1-2, 2024
Directed by Blake Bowen                  
Black Box 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.


“My Emperor’s New Clothes,” by Larry Shue
A musical play for children                            
From a story by Hans Christian Anderson
Directed by Paige Tufford
Dart Auditorium
April 5-6 and 12-13, 2024

A colorful, brightly comic and truly delightful treat for young audiences, written by one of our theatre’s most accomplished playwrights. The author has transformed the famous original children’s story into a fresh and lively theatre piece filled with funny lines, hummable songs and fast-paced action.


Music ensemble concerts, including the Concert Choir, Jazz Band and Rock Band, will announce concert dates early in the fall semester. For audition and show information, visit
