2022-23 Season: Walking in Time
From Fermat's Last Theorem through the Go-Go's and back to a Connecticut town in 1905 celebrating the Fourth of July, the Department of Theater's 2022-23 production season reflects our strong artistic and pedagogical commitment to staging plays that challenge how we think and celebrate how we feel.
Lafayette's Department of Theater announces open auditions for the fall and spring semester productions of our 2022-23 season.
Guest Theater Artists, Lunchtime Chats, and Panel Discussions for Each Production!
Theater artists share their visions of a more inclusive America, and Lafayette theater alums chronicle their experiences in the professional world. Panel discussions promise to confront issues raised in Theater Department productions and make all of us better theater-goers.
Each year, plays are selected to acquaint student performers and technicians with different theatrical genres and styles, and help them develop an aesthetic of performance that is grounded in both theory and practice.
Making "The Importance of Being Earnest" Happen
While students rehearse Oscar Wilde's classic comedy, student technicians and shop assistants are busy creating the scenery, properties, and costumes that will make Wilde's world come to life.
Have A Seat: Theater Department Legacy Endowment Fund
The Department of Theater has a seat waiting for you in the Weiss Theater. Stand up for theater and HAVE A SEAT! Give that seat a name and take your place in a legacy of inspiration, exploration, and artistic achievement.
