We’re all still climbing out of the past two years, and many of us would rather forget. So, this season, we’re focusing on intimate stories that explore the world in which we live.Student-centered theatre is at the heart of the Furman Theatre. By exploring this 22/23 season with us, you’re on a journey to support students as they learn to become theatre artists on a changed globe. We’ve got an exciting lineup on the Main Stage, led by professionals and executed by students. That’s what you’ll find here, but you’ll also see student-led work throughout the 22/23 season, whether in the Treehouse Studio or in class presentations. We hope you’ll join us.

Single tickets go on sale for each show 2-weeks prior to opening. An “All Access Pass” will be available for $25 starting on August 1. Whenever production rights allow, we will continue to provide a streaming option for productions this season.
