The importance of a college education goes well beyond classes. The MSU Department of Theatre recognizes this as we assist in our students’ journey from youth to adulthood. From performer to artist. From dreamer to designer. From hobbyist to practitioner. Join MSU’s Department of Theatre for a season of journeys.

Over the past few years our audiences, donors and friends have witnessed the amazing journey of the Department as it has transformed its spaces and mission. Please join us this year as the journey takes audiences to new and unexpected places. We hope that you will consider being a season subscriber to the MSU Department of Theatre.

We are excited to continue our collaboration with the MSU Federal Credit Union Institute for Arts & Creativity at Wharton Center on a musical theatre immersion program. The imaGEN program is designed to connect our students with top professionals working in musical theatre, specifically in new musical development. Directors, writers and actors will come to campus to work with students on workshops for public presentation. Our second collaboration will be FOR TONIGHT in October 2015.

The numerous unique theatrical endeavors all Department of Theatre members participate in annually make me proud of our current Spartan theatre students and faculty.
