Past Theatre Seasons: 2010-2012

Here at SMU Meadows School of the Arts, we make and teach theatre that celebrates the human spirit, that is deeply engaged with the larger world and that represents the very highest standards.

Our performance season normally includes eight main stage productions, including "The Rep," a two-weekend fall production of three contemporary plays performed in repertory, and another production entering its 17th year called "New Visions, New Voices," a spring festival of new plays written and directed by senior theatre students.

Here's a look at our recent seasons.
