Theatre Program


Coming Soon:


In celebration of Black History Month -



In August 1831, Nat Turner led a slave uprising that shook the conscience of the nation. Turner's startling account of this rebellion and his insurrection was recorded and published by attorney Thomas R. Gray in “The Confessions of Nat Turner, the Leader of the Late Insurrection in Southampton, Va.,”.  Nat Turner in Jerusalem was written by the New York Theatre Workshop Fellow playwright Nathan Alan Davis.  The play imagines Turner’s final night in a jail cell in Jerusalem, Virginia. 


"Nat Turner in Jerusalem is perhaps best regarded as an earnest, gravely lyrical gloss on a document that will surely always evoke passionate and widely different responses. Or as Turner says, with solemn hopes for the future of his transcribed confessions, 'Doubting Thomas may attempt to drown my words, but if God wills it, some will float to sandy shores and wait there to be sifted.'” - New York 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.
