Where the classroom meets the stage. We provide students with opportunities to put into practice the lessons they learn in our classrooms, from performance and technical skills to historical knowledge to the role of the arts in grappling with social and cultural change.

Our Friends and Sponsors
Our 2022-23 season is sponsored by Truity Credit Union and supported by the Friends of Theatre & Dance. The University Theatre is partially funded by the KU Student Senate Activity Fee.
The University Theatre’s season finale opens with a big, inviting party. That’s one reason why Act 1 of Cabaret is so adored and a reason the musical’s ending hits so hard, said Markus Potter, director and assistant professor in the Department of Theatre & Dance.
KU Theatre & Dance students earned awards and recognition from the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, Region V. Almost all of this outstanding work was part of actualized productions of the University Theatre.
