Wednesday, May 4
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Chad Larabee
On an island where everyone’s in love with someone, but no one’s in love with the someone who loves them back, a castaway may be able to set everything right. Twelfth Night is a classic tale of gender-bending hijinks, mistaken identity, and the quest for true love. “If music be the food of live, play on.”
March 31-April 9
Artistic Director Kate Walat
The Theatre Program’s annual festival of play readings features works written, directed, and performed entirely by students. See some of the freshest writing that UAlbany has to offer, and be a part of the dynamic process of theatre being made, in the kind of creative collaborations at the heart of the American theatre.
Music Performance Ensembles
The Music Program’s ensembles perform on campus every semester. Our vocal groups include a large Chorale and the audition-based Chamber Singers. Instrumental ensembles include Orchestra, Jazz Band, Concert Band, and Percussion Ensemble. The Marching and Pep Bands play at athletic events. Non-majors and community members are welcome to participate.
Auditions for UAlbany Theatre productions occur three times a year.
