How much of our parents we want to inherit, and how much we prefer not to become like them?
Proof is the winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama andis a work that explores the tricky development of personal identity and the unknowability of love as much as it does the mysteries of the world of math.  Proof focuses on Catherine, a young woman who has spent years caring for her father, Robert, (a brilliant mathematician as a young man, who was later unable to function without her help.)

We’re honored to host theatre artist, Forward Theatre founding member and Edgewood College Theatre Alumni, Sam White.

one acts

Student Directed One-Acts

Contemporary one-act plays directed by Edgewood Theatre Arts students:  fresh, funny, thought-provoking and smart, this variety pack of plays showcases the talents of our students onstage and behind the scenes. 
The theatre department has grown so much of late, that we have had to change our requirement for this.  In the past all majors were required to direct, but now this production will be a collaborative capstone experience of the One Act Play production class where some students will still direct, but others will take over other areas of design and production so that more students can have a meaningful collaborative production experience, not limited to directing. Tickets go on sale April 1st. and this will run April 30- May 2.


  • Thursday, April 30—7:30 p.m.
  • Friday, May 1—7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, May 2—2:00 & 7:30 p.m.

Theatre for Young Audiences Production, written by the TFYA class

directed by Susan Nanning Sorenson

Students from the Theatre For Young Audiences class will once again research, write, rehearse and tour an original piece, this year highlighting the issue of the health of ocean life and coral reefs.  This is the seventh original production for young audiences produced by that class, which not only tours to schools, but also brings students to our campus for a free show in the Anderson Auditorium.  We also always do a production, free and open to all, on an evening in the last week of classes.  This will run May 5 and tour to area schools on May 7.


  • Tuesday, May 6—1:00 & 7:00 p.m.
