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 Spring 2021 season will be virtual. Free ticket reservations can be made by emailing email@example.com. 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 showtime.
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.
Participants will have one day to create and virtually perform short plays in small groups. Each group will receive a prompt and go from there! A fun artistic challenge.
A devised production created by the students from the New York Semester on Theatre under the guidance of the renowned Tectonic Theater Project. Monstress features adaptations of three canonical stories about monstrous women: “The White Snake” (based on the Chinese legend); “The Sandman” (based on the short story by E.T.A. Hoffmann from Germany); and “Medusa” (based on Greek mythology). This production tackles timely issues with artistic ingenuity as students explored the creative possibilities of theatre in the virtual world. Directed by Jolie Tong (faculty).
Content warning: this show addresses violence, abuse, and sexual assault.
Four plays will be presented, each written by Drew University students. These plays were selected by the New York-based Ensemble Studio Theatre, who then worked with the young playwrights to further develop their scripts. Staged readings of their plays will be professionally directed and will feature student performers alongside professional actors. The audience is invited to participate in a discussion about the plays after the readings.
