2020-2021 Department of Theatre and Dance Season

Join the University at Buffalo Department of Theatre and Dance (THD) for a unique fall season of virtual musicals, plays and dance – 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 the Covid-19 era, the arts offer welcome comfort, perspective, escape, joy and intellectual stimulation.

Given the pandemic, THD’s fall season of productions will take place entirely in the digital realm, with both live and pre-recorded segments filmed at our traditional Amherst, NY home UB Center for the Arts on the UB North Campus, and observing all social distancing and safety protocols for the best experience for our talented study body and dedicated patrons. We look forward to the future day when it is possible to return to safe live, in-person performance with large, appreciate Western New York audiences.
