UWMC Theatre offers a variety of production experiences, ranging from musical comedy to innovative contemporary drama. We endeavor to link productions to the larger campus curriculum and reveal the valuable contribution theatre makes to discussing vital ideas.
Through Communication and Theatre Arts 131, UW-Marathon County students can earn academic credit for their involvement in production efforts. Our intimate size and grass roots approach enable hands-on learning in performance, set construction, lighting and sound, and costuming as well as production and house management.
We also thrive on the involvement of community members who frequently contribute to our productions as members of our casts and crews.
The UWMC Theatre proudly announces their 2014-15 Season:
The Other Place
Presented as part of the UWMC second annual Festival of the Arts & Sciences, The Other Place explores the aging mind through a fine blend of pathos and comedy. Cast features Sarah Rudolph and Jim O’Connell playing another middle-aged couple though one without the same degree of dysfunction in George and Martha in Edward Albee’s Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf whom they played early last season.
Of Mice and Men
John Steinbeck's classic portrayal of George and Lenny. Of Mice and Men is a poignant story of two markedly different migrant farm workers travelling the same road.
The Importance of Being Earnest
Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People.
Auditions are held in the Black Box Theater in the UW Center for Civic Engagement.
