NEW WORKS NOW! Submissions Open
Beckett. Hansberry. Ailey. Tharp. These esteemed playwrights and choreographers weren’t always household names. Samuel, Lorraine, Alvin, and Twyla were once young writers and dancers paying their dues, exploring their passion, and finding their voice. New Works brings to the stage works from students and alumni of the Department, celebrating 50 years of risk-taking expression and creative process. Learn what it means to be a creative type with this mixed bag of original works-in-progress that caps off our golden anniversary season.
