University Theatre

The MSUM University Theatre Series includes several main stage productions, two annual dance concerts and many student-directed and/or created pieces each year. The main stage productions involve students from across campus who participate as performers and technicians.

2020-2021 Main Stage Performances

One of the great attributes of the Theatre is how it honors community, how it impacts community and how it makes community. We will continue to do our very best to be a valuable asset to the multiple communities we serve, including our MSUM faculty and staff, our MSUM students, our Fargo-Moorhead community, and our patrons, during this uncertain time. We will keep you updated while working tirelessly and strategically to ensure the health and safety of everyone associated with MSUM University Theatre and The Straw Hat Players.

ROE
Sunday, November 1, 7:30 p.m.

By: Lisa Loomer
Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that legalized abortion, is still fiercely debated over forty years later. In this incisive play, acclaimed writer Lisa Loomer cuts through the headlines and rhetoric to reveal the divergent personal journeys of lawyer Sarah Weddington and plaintiff Norma McCorvey ("Jane Roe") in the years following the fateful decision. In turns shocking, humorous, and poignant, ROE reflects the polarization in America today while illuminating the heart and passion each side has for its cause.

Six Years Old
Sunday, December 6, 7:30 p.m.

By: Daphne Silbiger
Adalaide is six years old, and she knows a few things: Her stupid babysitter Kim is stupid, her younger brother Dewey is a naked mole rat, and she does NOT like being treated like a girl. Though Kim takes Adalaide’s frustrations seriously and tries to offer support, Adalaide’s family and peers discourage her, leaving her to seek out dangerous measures in order to transform into who she was born to be (her hero, Han Solo). SIX YEARS OLD is a comic and poignant play reflecting back on the wild fantasies and serious desires of queer childhood.
