Theater Performances

Each fall and spring, students take the stage to showcase their talents in music and theater. Auditions are held twice a year, one in the fall for the play production and another in the spring for the musical production. Students, faculty and staff are all encouraged to participate whether it is on the stage, in the pit or behind the scenes.

Productions typically run for three performances, and admission is free to all students, faculty and staff. Under the direction of Tim Moylan, associate professor of English and director of the theater program, students get the full theater experience from top tier costume and set design to a state-of-the-art performance space in the Academic and Research Building auditorium.

The theater program works to bring vibrant and entertaining productions to campus. Past productions include:

  • "Holmes for the Holidays"
  • "I Love You; You’re Perfect; Now Change"
  • "She Kills Monsters"
  • War of the Worlds:  The Panic Broadcast"
  • "The Thirty-Nine Steps"

For students looking to expand their horizons and explore their artistic abilities, theater is a great way to tap into that pool of creativity.

For more information, contact Tim Moylan, associate professor of English and director of the theater program, at tim.moylan@uhsp.edu or 314.446.8456.

Spring Production Viewing

Join us for an on-demand viewing of our spring production of "War of the Worlds: The Panic Broadcast." Our students, faculty and staff performed this production in spring 2021 in front of a live audience. 

This on-demand re-broadcast allows audience members to attend the performance remotely and includes a pre-show interview with show writer, Howard Koch, and a review of the post-show panic and reaction, including color commentary by Orson Welles and the original show producer, John Houseman. 

On-demand access runs Friday, Jan. 14 at 7 p.m. CST through Sunday, Jan. 16 at 7 p.m. CST.

Watch the spring production.
