CURRENT PRODUCTION:

Constellations

The Sul Ross Theatre program presents Constellations, a two-person play by Nick Payne. Starring Sul Ross theatre students Cierra Noel and Cory Hill and directed by Sul Ross Assistant Professor of Theatre and Communication Marjie Scott, Constellations is a play about free will and friendship; it’s also about quantum multiverse theory, love and honey. Marianne, a physicist, and Roland, a beekeeper, meet at party and go for a drink. Or perhaps they don’t. Having fallen madly in love, they begin a relationship that eventually veers off course. A chance encounter brings them back together, or maybe it reveals that Marianne is now engaged to someone else and that’s that. Or it might be Roland who’s engaged. Maybe Marianne and Roland will be together forever, or maybe their time will be tragically short. As Marianne says in the play, “Imagine rolling the dice six-thousand times.”

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.
