2020-21 Season

MainStage Productions

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, VUTheatre will not present any full productions in Fall 2020. We do plan to offer some small scale events throughout the fall semester, however, those plans have not yet been finalized.

Once we have determined specific plans, we will post them on this page, and also to the VUT Facebook page

Thank you for your interest in VUTheatre!

Student Productions

Throughout the academic year, there are opportunities for student directors, actors, designers, and technicians to collaborate on performances that supplement the department’s four mainstage productions. The First Year Showcase, directed and designed by upperclass VUTheatre students, is cast from the incoming first year class. The annual 24-Hour Production is an opportunity for VUTheatre students to write, stage, and perform new plays in a single day and night. Students from Playwriting and Screenwriting courses typically present work at the end of each semester.  Senior Performance Ensemble, a capstone course, culminates in an original devised work developed and performed by graduating senior majors at the end of the academic year.


Fred Coe Artist-in-Residence Program

The Fred Coe Artist-in-Residence Series brings theatre professionals to Vanderbilt to perform, direct plays, teach classes, and contribute to departmental productions in a variety of ways. It provides students with direct exposure to professional theatre artists from all areas of theatrical practice. We are excited to bring several theatre artists to campus in 2019-20.
