Department of Theatre

Theatre Thursday

Theatre UNI will hold celebrations following the first Thursday performance of each of our productions this Fall and Spring.  Receptions will be held following the 7:30 p.m. performance of Independence by Lee Blessing on October 8th, and following the 7:30 p.m. performance on October 29th of RENT by Jonathan Larson. Celebrations for Independence will be held at the Art Gallery Lobby in Kamerick on the University of Northern Iowa campus. Celebrations for RENT and The Glass Menagerie will be held in the Bertha Martin Theatre on the University of Northern Iowa campus.

“Theatre Thursday” is a tradition designed to celebrate our successes, blend UNI Alumni, Professionals, Stage, Inc. Members, and Students, and cultivate a community of theatregoers, lovers, and supporters of the Strayer-Wood Theatre.  This celebration will help to cultivate a sense of community among Cedar Valley theatre lovers and practitioners, as well as provide Department of Theatre students a networking opportunity.  Board Members from Friends of Theatre UNI will be on hand to greet guests and share the benefits of Friends membership.

Advance purchase of tickets to the performance on all “Theatre Thursday” is strongly encouraged. Tickets can be purchased from the Strayer-Wood Theatre lobby box office between noon and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. The box office will be open one hour before curtain time.
