Edgewood College Theatre is THRILLED to announce
our 2021-2022 Theatre Season!

 

"The Triumph of Love"

By Pierre Marivaux

Adapted and directed by
Susan Nanning-Sorenson

 

Sept 22-26, 2021
Atrium at the Stream

 

First presented by the Comediens Italians in 1732, this timeless comedy clearly demonstrates the ageless affinity of laughter and love. "Marivaux's command of comedy is so adroit that the exploit moves as effortlessly as a master chess game, while the humor is pure delight…The present [production]…maintains such a delicious soufflé lightness to it all, that amusing phrases which might have jarred here merely enchant." —NY Post

"Vintage Hitchcock: 
A Live Radio Play"

By Joe Landry

Directed by Jeanne Leep

 

Nov 12-13, 18-20, 2021
Diane Ballweg Theatre

 

Spies, murder, love, and other trademarks of Alfred Hitchcock come to life in the style of a 1940s radio broadcast of the master of suspense's earlier films. With The LodgerSabotage and The 39 Steps, Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play is a triple feature, complete with vintage commercials, that recreates a daring train chase, a serial killer's ominous presence, and a devastating explosion through the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring.

"Sister Act"

Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Glenn Slater, Book by Cheri Steinkellner
& Bill Steinkellner

 

Directed by Audrey Wax Standish
Musical Direction by
Sergei Pavlov

 

Feb 25-26, Mar 3-5, 2021
Diane Ballweg Theatre

 

A woman hiding in a convent helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she rediscovers her own. This feel-good comedy smash is based on the hit film.

"The Tempest"

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Jeanne Leep

 

April 27-May 1 2022
Atrium at the Stream

 

Shakespeare’s most original play of magic, betrayal, love, revenge, forgiveness, romance and a bit of social justice, this classic tale brings the poetry of the bard to life.

   
   

 

What’s changing?

We will be working with health and safety guidelines to follow the procedures in place at the time for each performance. Safety for our audience, cast, crew and all members of our community is our priority.

We’ll be creating a new way of seating audience members in their group-pods while maintaining safety guidelines.  Stay tuned for more info as we “learn as we go” in this world of changing needs.

Our goal is to perform all of our shows live, but should situations change with the pandemic, we do have the capability and the performing rights to move to an online streaming platform, only if needed.  As long as live, in person theatre experiences are back, we do not plan to stream or record our shows.

For this season, some of our shows will be performed in one week and weekend.   We will not be performing twice in the same space on the same day as we have in the past.  We are working around many scheduling issues for this season which requires some flexibility in scheduling changes to our season.

We’ll be using our outdoor amphitheater at the back of The Stream as part of our regular season for the first time for two of our productions! 

 
   


Thanks for your continued support of theatre and the theatre students!

 

 

Edgewood College Theatre

Mission Statement

Edgewood College Theatre presents an annual season of productions for the students, the college community and the greater community of Madison. We rotate our offerings to provide a wide range of theatrical experiences, time periods, genres, voices and lenses for both our students and our audiences.

These productions create an educational and artistic environment that nurtures creativity, academic integrity and professionalism. The productions also serve as the context in which classroom and studio work combine with performance as we collaboratively share our vision and ideas with the community, our audiences.

We strive to give students hands on opportunities to learn theatre by doing theatre--both onstage and behind the scenes, to practice green theatre techniques by leaving a light footprint on the earth, to serve the students we have at the highest level while always seeking to enrich the diversity of our talent pool, artists and theatrical offerings, and to uphold the Sinsinawa Dominican values and mission to serve.

"A lot of the general public might assume theatre studies is all about long-gone playwrights like Shakespeare, [but] we explore so many identities and current events issues that relate to our experiences in the modern world."
