Open to any and all majors, University Theater (UT) is a hub of performance, design, and artistic creation for the UChicago community. At our core, we’re a large group of passionate students who are driven by a love of what we do, and it shows in our work. Every year, our community puts students at the helm of over 35 shows across 5 performance spaces. We’re also proud to foster a direct dialogue with some of Chicago’s most talented and experienced theater professionals through our co-curricular involvement with the Committee on Theater and Performance Studies. Whether you’re interested in working backstage, onstage, or if you’re a little fuzzy on the difference between the two, we welcome you to the UT community!
