UI Theatre Arts Announces 2017-2018 Season

August 10, 2017

For the past eight decades, the University of Idaho’s Department of Theatre Arts, part of the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences, has brought audiences inspiring, captivating and thought-provoking work showcasing the directing, acting and designing talent of student and professional artists. The 2017-18 season continues this legacy with a lineup featuring a West Coast premiere, a holiday musical, a Pulitzer Prize finalist and a suspenseful classic drama.

This season’s performances include:

  • “ROOF,” written and directed by Ricky J. Martinez. A West Coast premiere. In this tribute to friendship and Miami, an eclectic group of emerging artists struggle to work out their relationships to art, society, and each other. October 2017. Hartung Theater.

  • “A Child’s Christmas in Wales – A Christmas Musical,” based on the story by Dylan Thomas. This nostalgic tale, set to music, is perfect for the holiday season. December 2017. Hartung Theater.

  • “True West,” by the late Sam Shepard, one of our nation’s most original, prolific and important playwrights. Volatile family dynamics take center stage in this 1983 Pulitzer Prize-nominated finalist. March/April 2018. The Forge Theater. 

  • “The Children’s Hour,” by Lillian Hellman. Two women face accusations that destroy their careers, relationships and lives. April 2018. Hartung Theater.

Tickets go on sale a month prior to each show’s opening and will be available at BookPeople of Moscow, in Room 201 in Shoup Hall or by calling 208-885-6465. Tickets are also available at the theater door an hour before curtain, while supplies last.
