2021-2022 Department of Theatre and Dance Season

Composite graphic of students in different shows and setting up the stage.

Join the University at Buffalo Department of Theatre and Dance (THD) for a unique season of dance, musicals, and plays – where nationally recognized directors and choreographers work with esteemed faculty and emerging student talent from UB to produce innovative original productions which both entertain and explore the human condition. In challenging times the arts offer welcome comfort, perspective, escape, joy and intellectual stimulation.

THD’s fall 2021 season of productions is a mix of live, in-person performances at our traditional Amherst, NY home UB Center for the Arts, and the Katharine Cornell Theatre, on the UB North Campus, plus ticketed streaming performances on showtix4u.com. We continue to observe all safety protocols for the best experience for our talented study body and dedicated patrons.
