Lafayette's Theater Department announces open auditions for the fall semester productions of our 2021-22 season.
Guest Theater Artists, Lunchtime Chats, and the FRINGE is back for 2021-2022
Theater artists share their visions of a more inclusive America, and Lafayette theater alums chronicle their experiences in the professional world. FRINGE 400 holds up our end of the national conversation about race and the legacy of colonialism that began 400 years ago when the Pilgrims arrived on the Mayflower.
Each year, plays are selected to acquaint student performers and technicians with various 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
