SBU Theatre Program

Students have the opportunity to participate in all aspects of theatre arts, including acting, directing, design, stagecraft and more. Participating in SBU theatre productions is a great opportunity for hands-on, interactive learning as you use your God-given gifts, talents and creativity.

SBU Theatre produces at least two mainstage productions each year, as well as other events such as improv shows, staged readings, 24-hour theatre, student plays and one-act plays. Our list of upcoming performances are listed below.
