Students in the play the Importance of Being Earnest.

Experience Theater at Mary

Theater at Mary is open to any major and any member of the community.

We welcome performers, technicians, and assistants with all levels of experience. Theater is linked to the university's mission to serve the intellectual, cultural, and spiritual needs of the people of this region through the production of diverse styles, periods, and artistic perspectives. Every effort is given to making the stage an extension of the classroom for both participant and audience. Auditions for most productions are publicly announced at the beginning of each academic year. All are welcome and encouraged to participate.

Theater Opportunities 

There are two main stage productions per year along with a musical cabaret in the fall and one student-directed production. Productions range from musicals to contemporary theater to classical theater.

Students also have the exciting opportunity to act in front of the camera and serve behind the camera in professional film productions produced in partnership with Canticle Productions. Past feature films include Sanctified, A Heart like Water, and End of the Rope
