Spotlight on Alumni Submissions

Each fall, the Department of Theatre puts the spotlight on our alumni as graduates return – now part of their own or other theatre companies – to present their plays or projects that have met with marked success in the world.

Alumni work together with department production and management students to produce their work on Phoenix stages as part of our season. It is also an opportunity to share experiences with current theatre students through talkback sessions and the production process. 

The Department of Theatre is pleased to announce the Call for Submissions for the 2020/21 season. Please review the specific criteria in the PDF below. The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2020.
