Schedule for new theatre seasonPosted September 10, 2013
The ACU Department of Theatre’s 2013-14 season includes three plays and two musicals. Along with these five performances, a one-night special performance will take place Sunday, Sept. 15, at 8:30 p.m., during this year's Summit. The piece, Living Letters, depicts Paul’s writing of Philippians and will feature Broadway performer Stephen Trafton.
"I'm incredibly excited about our upcoming season at ACU,” says Dawne Meeks, associate professor of acting and movement. “The plays we have chosen present deep truths that we feel are important to be explored – soul-searching truths about loss, renewal, identity and faith."
