Our production program is an integral part of our overall educational process—co-curricular rather than extra-curricular—where students in all areas of the theatre get to test in practice what they are learning in the classroom. To provide our students with as many practical opportunities as we can and to focus on the learning experience of the process of creating theatre and dance as well as the product of performance, we have a wide range of performances, from the staged reading to the fully-realized production.
All evening performances are at 7:30 p.m., except where noted.
Tickets for live on-stage productions are $10 for the general public and $5 for Drew students with ID (unless otherwise noted).
All performances taking place during the Fall 2020 season will be virtual. Free ticket reservations can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The performance link will be sent to you once your reservation is received.
Reservations made after 5 p.m. on the day of your selected show are not guaranteed to be processed by show time.
Most live performances are held in the Dorothy Young Center for the Arts, which houses The Concert Hall and the Thomas H. Kean theatre. Others may be held at the free-standing F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre. Learn more about our arts facilities.
In addition to our stellar student theatre performances, Drew University always has something going on. Exhibits, workshops, readings and many other events are open to the public.

A virtual performance depicting a collection of scenes by a diverse group of playwrights, Snapshot brings to light unique perspectives on the culture and society we exist in. Each scene taking its inspiration from the photograph “Mt. Rushmore, South Dakota, 1969” by Lee Freidlander, Snapshot explores whether or not a picture really is worth a thousand words and what the implications of those words might be.

A virtual performance. Three young women meet at a bus stop – a high school girl waiting for a boy she’s never met further than texts on a dating app, her friend along for dubious moral support, and a jaded young woman waiting for her married boyfriend. In this place of transition, the young women grapple with the reality of their place as women in a modern world, and the ways in which patriarchy can pervade relationships between them, even when the men aren’t in the room.

A virtual performance. Hugo is a struggling musician and composer, who is incredibly talented, but always lacked the confidence and inspiration to become big. Unfortunately, it has only gotten worse since his car accident. The play begins not long after the accident took place and shows Hugo going down a dark path, while his loved ones are trying to bring him back to his feet.

A virtual performance. In 1938, eight women meet in a room of the insane asylum they are currently living in. Each woman claims and looks to be a woman of history: Susan B. Anthony, Joan of Arc, Osa Johnson, Pearl White, Gertrude Stein, Amelia Earhart, Constanze Mozart, and Queen Isabella of Spain. Only one of them is telling the truth about who she is, the rest are all truly insane.
