Production Synopsis: 
“Prove true imagination, O prove true!” – Act III, Scene IV

Spring 2025 Productions

Fefu and Her Friends

Written by María Irene Fornés
Directed by Dani Snyder-Young

Performances: February 19 – 23, 2025

Production Synopsis:
Hailed as game-changing, provocative, and genius, Fefu and Her Friends is one of the most influential – and invisible – plays of the 20th century. An innovation of immersive theater, Cuban-American playwright María Irene Fornés’s rapturous comedy-drama allows the audience to be a fly on many walls in this unconventional tale of eight women gathering at a New England country home in 1935.



The Department of Theatre is thrilled to present a festival of original works created by some of our graduating students for their Capstone Projects.


March 12 – 15, 2025


PROJECTS: To be created & announced!

25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Book by Rachel Sheinkin
Music & Lyrics by William Finn
Conceived by Rachel Feldman
Directed by Brian Demar Jones

Performances: March 27 – April 6

Production Synopsis:
An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one leaves a champion! At least the losers get a juice box.
