This 2019-2020 season we’re celebrating 50 years of producing theatre in The Playhouse. The Theatre Arts Department has been a staple of the liberal arts curriculum at Furman for nearly a century. Part of that curriculum is the Furman University Theatre main stage season that entertains, educates, and engages thousands of students and patrons each year.
Single tickets go on sale for each show 2-weeks prior to opening. Season Subscriptions available now.
