Each year, students in the BFA graduating class of the School of Dramatic Art take a Character Study course in which they create a 20-minute solo show and perform in our Studio Theatre or in the Acting Studio in a festival at the end of April. Many of our students have taken these original works and turned them into Fringe festival performances, or used them as a stepping stone to their careers as actors and creators.

Naturally, we won't be able to share these performances with you as we normally would, in person, but we're thrilled to be able to bring you a whole new way to experience these works in a month-long celebration of student works.

Throughout the month of May, we'll be releasing a new performance each day. You'll have a chance to watch these world-premiere performances right from the comfort of your home! We'll be releasing more details soon about how to buy tickets to this incredible digital event.

We're looking forward to bringing you a new way to experience student performances as we explore the creation of theatre in the digital realm. 


Tickets will be available through the University Players online box office HERE.
