Theater  is a wild ride of a theater festival where students write, produce, direct, rehearse and perform short plays centered around a secret theme all in the span of 24 hours! Come see the culmination of their work, or signup here to participate!
Hosted by TAPS, Project Day is a quarterly event for the casts and crews of all the shows to meet each other, other performance RSOs, and TAPS staff. This quarter, learn about wellness and self-care in the arts in a workshop led by Colleen Hughes. Feel free to come even if you are not on a show - it’s a great way to meet theater people and learn about the performance opportunities at UChicago!
cmcbonding: games ‘n’ fun
UT’s quarterly Company Meets Company Bash returns again on the UT Discord! After Project Day, come bond with your company beyond being Zoom boxes, and hang out with other UT friends, new and old! We’ll be playing Jackbox and other games, plus some surprise activities along the way… Anyone in a UT production in this winter, who’s been on a past show, or is looking to get involved is welcome!

Join us for the Winter Quarter Intergenerational Revue! Every Friday from 4th-8th week, Generations 33, 34, and 35 will present a never-before-seen comedy show, never to be seen again… unless you’re in a Groundhog Day situation, in which case, we can’t help you. All love, though!
This season will feature pre-glows from UChicago stand-up comedians, dance crew, and our very own Generation 36.
Come watch staged readings of scenes from six plays written, directed, and performed by students! This is a free event!
The Frau used to direct beautiful films for a fascist government. Now she’s trying to make a film that’s simply beautiful. But when telegrams start to arrive from the Minister of Propaganda, The Frau can no longer ignore the real war outside her sound stage.

At the annual Von Meyer Christmas Eve party, the youngest generation of the Von Meyer family find their retreat in the back office.

A free preview will take place Thursday, Feb. 17.
Not every marriage proposal goes as planned. Loy A. Webb’s The Light introduces us to Rashad and Genesis on what should be one of the happiest days of their lives, but their joy quickly unravels when ground-shifting accusations from the past resurface in this gripping two-character drama. Can their relationship survive the growing divide between them over who – and what – to believe? The Light is a reckoning that unfolds in real-time and peels away the layers of truth, doubt, pain, and, ultimately, the power of love. A free preview will take place Thursday, March 3.
