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.

Jefferson's Garden

By Timberlake Wertenbaker
Directed by Patricia Riggin

Synopsis: America, 1776.

Christian is a Quaker. His family came to America to live in peace. But he is a young man fired up by dreams of revolution. Should he defy his community and pick up a gun?

Thomas Jefferson is an idealist, with a vision of liberty for all. But America is a fractured coalition of states in a bloody war for independence. How will he balance the ideal with the reality?

Susanna was born a slave. But the British promise liberation for those who join their fight against the revolution. Where does true freedom lie?
