Theatre and Dance

Production History


The Department of Theatre and Dance has a long history, going back over 53 years. During that time, the department has produced over 600 shows ranging from Mainstage, Studio, Summer Music Theatre, and Showcase productions.  For a nearly-complete history of productions (excluding Studio), take a look at the PRODUCTION HISTORY list.

For over 25 years we have usually presented two dance concerts a year in the Hainline Theatre.  More intimate dance concerts have also been presented in the Brophy Hall Dance Studio.
