BVU Theatre supports students in the production and presentation of scenes and short and full-length plays through play readings, performance showcases, and mainstage productions.
New Visions Series
The New Visions Series is focused on student-directed and/or student-written mainstage productions, either in one-act or full-length forms. Recent New Visions productions include Steel Magnolias directed by Carrie New, and Mirks written and directed by Luke T. Harwath.
Acting and directing students demonstrate their skills and talent each semester through free public performance showcases. Acting students present monologues and scenes from their semester in the Fundamentals of Acting or Advanced Acting classes, and directors present their one-act plays for Fundamentals of Directing or Advanced Directing credit. Acting and directing showcases alternate each year.
When students are interested in writing their own material, either as conventional, scripted drama, or as improv performance, the BVU Theatre organizes play readings and developmental workshops to help students fine tune and ready their work for the stage.
