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 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.    

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 working to bring several theatre artists to campus in this year.
