The Triumph of Love

September 22, 23, 25, 25 at 7:30 pm and September 26 at 2:00 pm
Written By: Pierre Marivaux
Directed By: Susan Nanning-Sorenson
Performed in: Atrium at the Stream (outdoor seating), Edgewood College Theatre

First presented in 1732, this timeless comedy clearly demonstrates the ageless affinity of laughter and love. A princess driven by honest and noble goals uses a series of dishonest, but raucously funny deceptions and disguises to achieve them. Employing a variety of alter egos, and all her considerable charms, the princess quickly turns the heads and hearts of a stuffy philosopher, and his spinster sister, before restoring an unsuspecting prince to his rightful throne.

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."
