Welcome to the Theatre Department
We are a community of students, faculty, and staff who are committed to theatre education that combines scholarship and art. We seek to foster creativity, critical thinking, excellence, and professionalism through the integration of courses, productions, workshops, and other activities. We seek to understand theatre not only as a means of artistic expression and a form of entertainment but, as a window onto history, a method of inquiry into all things human, and a vehicle for social change.
We invite you to join us in this mission. For more information, contact any Theatre department faculty or staff member, look around this website, or just stop by the Robsham Theater Arts Center today and say hello.

In roaring twenties Chicago, Roxie Hart murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband Amos to take the rap...until he finds out he's been duped and turns on Roxie. Convicted and sent to death row, Roxie and another "Merry Murderess" Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the "American Dream": fame, fortune and acquittal.
