Seasonal Event

Gospel According to First Squad
Arena Theatre, Wright Hall

What story would you die to defend?  What tale would you spin to justify dying for nothing? Tom Burmester’s Gospel According to First Squad tells the story of men at war in a distant land, and the stories they tell to get themselves home.  

This bold, contemporary work is given its regional premiere by UC Davis Department of Theatre and Dance and Theatre and Dance Ensemble in the Arena Theatre of Wright Hall on September 29-October 1 and October 6-8 at 7:00 p.m. and October 1 and 8 at 2:00 p.m. 

Seasonal Event

The Trojan Women
Main Theatre, Wright Hall

Award-winning playwright, director and producer Kirsten Brandt adapts Euripides’ tragedy The Trojan Women and brings a bold new voice to this classic anti-war play — making it accessible for contemporary audiences. 

Kirsten Brandt serves as the Granada Artist-in-Residence for fall quarter 2016.

Seasonal Event

Outside the Lines
Main Theatre, Wright Hall

Outside the Lines brings an audience into the process of choreography. The performance showcases works in various stages of conception and development and articulates and illustrates the perspective and objectives of the artists and collaborators. The showcase is full of performances from the students of the UC Davis Theatre and Dance Department’s Dramatic Arts Program including undergraduate and graduate student choreographies and work from our very own Theatre and Dance Department Head, David Grenke.
