The Department of Theater has an active production schedule, including four undergraduate productions and two graduate productions per academic year. Undergraduate production work is open to the university community and includes majors, minors, and interested students, staff, and faculty across campus.
Undergraduate department productions are presented at historic Eldred Theater in the heart of the CWRU campus. The shows range from classical works to modern dramas and the focus is to create high-quality and challenging performing and backstage opportunities for students.
Graduate student productions are produced jointly with Cleveland Play House and are open to graduate students and invited guest artists only. The graduate ensemble performs at the Helen Rosenfeld Lewis Bialosky Lab Theatre in Playhouse Square in downtown Cleveland.
