What's Playing

Current Production Season


After a good deal of consideration it has been decided that in the best interest of the Department, the students, and our public that the production of THE REALISTIC JONESES be cancelled

This is an unfortunate turn of events and not a decision that has been made lightly.  Thank you for your understanding and as always your support of each other. 

From the UW homepage: "The University of Wyoming has extended its spring break by one week in response to concerns about the novel coronavirus COVID-19. A decision will be made later regarding whether face-to-face classes on campus will resume Monday, March 30. Check our official coronavirus page for more information."

This off-beat new comedy features the Joneses, and their new neighbors, the Joneses, two suburban couples who have even more in common than their identical homes and shared last names. What seems like a series of quirky and funny encounters between small-town American neighbors becomes a captivating look at how impossible it is for words to fully capture feeling, and how miraculous it is for human beings to truly know each other.
