The Open Stages Project

We envision Open Stages projects as opportunities for graduate students to play around with ways of making theatre that are new to us. Through experimental stagings of new works and new interpretations of what’s familiar, we will strengthen the already overlapped connections between our scholarly, artistic, and civic interests. We will seek collaboration across campus departments and degree plans with the belief that multiple ways of seeing enrich process, product, and participants. Our commitment to complementing University Theatre’s Mainstage season with productions dealing in non-traditional forms and content is in line with the University of Wisconsin’s mission to provide a learning environment to discover and critically examine knowledge, wisdom, and values. Open Stages has the intention of diversifying ideas about what “theatre” can be for our student and community audience members.
