The School of Theatre, Film & Television (TFTV) at the University of Arizona College of Fine Arts is proud to present the return of live, in-person, public performances with the announcement of its 2021/2022 theatre season. In a move to provide performance opportunities for more theatre students, the School’s six-show season will comprise four Arizona Repertory Theatre (ART) productions and two productions presented by the Next Performance Collective, and will take place from October 2021 through May 2022.
Beloved in the local theatre landscape and regularly ranking in Onstage’s ‘National Top 30 Musical Theatre Programs,’ ART is a training program modeled after professional theatre companies and comprises students from the BFA program in Acting and Musical Theatre. A new initiative of the BA Theatre Studies division, Next Performance Collective houses outstanding student-devised theatre pieces and works by emerging playwrights. Students from the Design and Technology program will provide technical and production support on all productions.
“With this season we look forward to amplifying under-represented voices, and to providing students across the School with an opportunity to work on a broad range of classical, contemporary and self-devised work,” says TFTV Director Andy Belser. “The variety of productions truly means that there is something for everyone.”
