Welcome to the Theatre Department

We are a community of students, faculty, and staff who are committed to theatre education that combines scholarship and art. We seek to foster creativity, critical thinking, excellence, and professionalism through the integration of courses, productions, workshops, and other activities. We seek to understand theatre not only as a means of artistic expression and a form of entertainment but as a window onto history, a method of inquiry into all things human, and a vehicle for social change.

We invite you to join us in this mission. For more information, contact any Theatre department faculty or staff member, look around this website, or just stop by the Robsham Theater Arts Center today and say hello.

What Every Girl Should Know

By Monica Byrne

January 26th-29th


In 1914, four teenage girls in a NY Catholic reformatory adopt birth control activist Margaret Sanger as their secret patron saint. Together they build a communal fantasy life where they travel the world and take lovers at will. Through these imaginative stories, they reveal their abusive pasts, marred by unwanted sexual encounters with older men. Their fantasy life grows more and more elaborate until one of them discovers she is pregnant, calling into question the relationship between their fantasy world and the real one.
