Theatre Schedule

The Theatre department offers BA and BFA degrees in theatre, a BFA in Musical Theatre, and a minor in theatre. We encourage students to participate actively in their education by undertaking independent studies and small group projects that meet their educational needs. At Marietta, classes are small and contact with faculty is intensive both inside and outside the classroom. We like to think that the theatre is our classroom and that every minute of every day is an opportunity to learn more.

The Theatre at Marietta College
2013-2014 Season:
"Caught in the Act"

 

The Theatre at Marietta College is proud to announce its 2013-2014 performance season on the theme of "Caught in the Act." The best theatre makes art out of the profundity of human actions. Live performances offer make-believe worlds where active fantasies share the stage with gripping truths. Thus, we get caught in the act of suspending time and reality when we attend the theatre. But being “caught in the act” also promises the high drama of revelations, complications, and judgments of guilt or innocence. The primary characters in our productions this season will all get caught in the act – of deception, of jealousy, of provoking the status quo – and their stories are richer for it. Join the Theatre at Marietta College this season and get caught up in the action!

Come to the Theatre at Marietta College to hear and see the stories. We invite you to delight in what is excitingly left to the imagination. Such an open space is where the work of the artist and the gift of the audience connect.



The 67th Mainstage Series

The Maids

By Jean Genet

Directed by Andy Felt

September 20 at 8:00pm

September 21, 27, 28 at 2:00 p.m. & 8:00 p.m.

September 22 at 2:00 p.m.

Two housemaid sisters play out eerie and tempestuous rituals while their mistress is away. As they kick up their heels to imagine living “the good life,” their games kick up the dust surrounding our ideas of power, social status, and privilege. Turns out, a twisty murder plot is brewing along with Madame’s tea. Genet’s masterful absurdist one-act is a theatrical thrill ride—as devious and disconcerting as it is funny and fabulous.

When Professor Harold Hill, an infamously sly traveling salesman of boys’ band equipment, jumps off the train and into the stubborn Iowa town of River City, with its infamously prim librarian and piano teacher, Marian Paroo, he realizes he will need to combine fast talk with fancy footwork or risk facing the music. Eee-gads! The Music & Theatre departments unite to bring our river city this American musical classic featuring favorites like “76 Trombones,” “Till There Was You,” “Ya Got Trouble,” “Gary, Indiana,” and “Shipoopi!”
