Theatre Program


Now Playing: 


A play by John Logan

Red, set in the 1950’s and based on true events, tells the story of American painter Mark Rothko and his struggle to create a series of murals, newly commissioned for the Four Seasons Restaurant in New York. Rothko and his assistant Ken paint together and challenge each other’s limits, asking critical questions about the creation of art and the role it should have in society. Red is meant to portray the profound and sometimes unstable dynamic between an artist and his works.

Red contains strong language and smoking on stage.

The theatre program at Sul Ross is guided by the philosophy that students will graduate with a university - level understanding of theatrical production.  It is driven by a passionate team of professors and students who create an inviting and engaging environment for learning the craft.

Sul Ross offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Theatre and a Minor in Theatre. Even if they've never set foot on a stage before, students are welcomed and immersed in all aspects of theatre, everything from writing plays to directing to the many details of production and even the promotion surrounding the performance.



Their skills are finely tuned and they are offered opportunities that wouldn't be as accessible at many other schools' programs. Sul Ross puts on a number of productions throughout the year with four key areas in mind: playwriting, musical theatre, bilingual theatre, and children's theatre.   Students learn the art of playwriting and take on the process of developing original works from script to stage. 






Sul Ross Theatre also teaches the value of working across programs to produce musical theatre and expanding a student's repertoire to the particulars of children's theatre. The emerging Latino Theatre Program has brought a national focus to Sul Ross.  Recently, the Sul Ross original production of Moises: A Modern-Day Tragedy by resident playwright, Liz Coronado Castillo, was invited to perform at the Region VI Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in San Angelo, TX.    Off Campus, the program is also very involved with the local community of Alpine, Texas and produces the Theatre of the Big Bend, a series of outdoor repertory performances through the summer against the beautiful backdrop of Far West Texas.
