Theatre Program


A message from Bret Scott, Director of Avenue Q:

"I've been waiting to direct Avenue Q at Sul Ross for years.  This amazing cast has been working on the music since September and puppetry since January.  I lack the words to fully explain how excited I was/still am about sharing the effort of these talented artists with you.  And now, just as we're ready to open, we're indefinitely postponed.  (Thanks a lot, Coronavirus!)  Our new plan is to run the show either this summer or in the fall semester, assuming we are allowed to leave our homes by then.  We will honor any tickets that have already been purchased and are grateful for your support.  If you're in the position to make a donation or purchase tickets for a later show to donate, you will be a hero to these hard-working student artists.  If you have access to Facebook - please go to sul ross drama and you can watch some rehearsal footage from the show. Please enjoy!"


Stay Healthy and Stay Tuned!!!

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.
