Curtain Call Fridays

We are thrilled to add post-performance discussions immediately following the Friday performance. Moderated by members of the department faculty and featuring a rotating array of cast and artistic team members, Curtain Call Fridays offer a rare opportunity for audience members to talk about the production, exploring topics that range from the rehearsal process to character development to the creative decisions behind the production or issues raised by the work.

Additional Concerts

Most of the following concerts take place at the Betty Pease Studio Theater, located within the Dance Building at 1310 N. University Ct., on the back side of the Central Campus Recreation Building (CCRB).

Parking is challenging in this part of campus.
