Theatre Opportunities


TheatreDepartmental Productions. McMurry theatre production auditions are open to all McMurry students with casting preference given to majors and minors. There are at least three faculty directed productions during each academic year. In addition, two to four full-length plays are offered each year by advanced students as senior projects and a series of one-act plays are staged each Spring by the Directing I class.

Summer Theatre. The summer theatre program produces one to three plays each summer in either conventional or dinner theatre formats. Guest directors, designers, and actors are regularly employed to offer the students exposure to as many different approaches to solving the problems of staging a play as possible. B.F.A. students are required to participate in at least one summer season.

Original Play Production. The department is dedicated to producing new plays written by McMurry students. Every other year, the department stages plays written by students of the Playwriting class of the previous year.

Out of a Trunk Theatre Company. The members of the company provide educational arts experiences in the public schools by presenting programs and conducting workshops throughout the school year.
