Student Productions

Students within the SRU Theatre Department are given opportunities each semester to propose and produce independent projects. While these projects are funded and supervised by the Theatre Department, the bulk of the responsibility and creative license lies with the students, offering them opportunities to collaborate with their peers as directors, designers, playwrights, technicians, administrators, and actors. Recent projects include:

  • Productions of full-length plays, including Dream of the Burning Boy, Gruesome Playground Injuries, Dog Sees God, and more.
  • Panic Attack: 24-hour new play festival
  • Procrastinate: cabaret-style evening of performances
