Texas Tech University

2021-2022 Season

We are eager to welcome you back to the theatre with our 2021-2022 season, exploring the theme of Awakenings!

Imagine this season as an invitation to share provocative and entertaining stories that encourage you to embrace unique experiences, intimate stories of awakenings: of love and desire, of joy and grief, of self-understanding and compassion. 

This season offers well-known musicals; boldly theatrical, moving, and (often) hilarious plays by exciting playwrights; and imaginative new choreography from our faculty, students, and guest artists that engages both with contemporary questions and personal reflections from our community of artists. In addition, we continue our commitment to new works with Frontier Fest, a week-long celebration of new dance and theatre works that will, for the first time, showcase full-length plays from our playwriting students. 

Even more than we have missed working alongside each other, we have missed seeing/hearing/sensing you, our audience. Performance is about community, of which you are an integral part.  
See you at the theatre!
