Welcome to Penn State Behrend's Theatre program.

The college's Studio Theatre, an intimate performance space, is the site for two fully-produced theatre productions each year, staged by Penn State Behrend students drawn from a variety of academic disciplines.

While the college does not offer a major in theatre, these productions give students a chance to meet new friends and colleagues, explore their creative side, enhance their performance and/or technical skills, and gain valuable communication and collaboration skills that will aid them in future classes and help them to meet long-term career aspirations.

Spring 2017 Musical

The official musical selection for the Spring 2017 semester is Dogfight by Pasek and Paul.

From Music Theatre International: It's November 21, 1963. On the eve of their deployment to a small but growing conflict in Southeast Asia, three young Marines set out for one final boys' night of debauchery, partying, and maybe a little trouble. But, when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress whom he enlists to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of love and compassion. 

Show dates are March 30 to April 1 and April 6-8.
