This Fall, instead of a "main stage production" the Department is filming "Bodies of Water" by former Film UAF student Adrina Knutson, directed by Maya Salganek.

The Salisbury Theatre will have some outside groups using the space (and we'll be filming some crucial scenes there), though not all of those titles are yet set.  We will add additional information as it becomes available.

The Green Room presents Rocky Horror

Rocky Horror Picture Show 2016

Presented by The Green Room in the Lee H. Salisbury Theatre

Rocky Horror is the first and only true audience partici-(SAY IT!)-pation movie. People yell back lines at the screen during the extended pauses between dialogue, dress up in costume and act out the film, and throw props various times during the film. The audience participation phenomenon was observed as early as the film's first run in 1975 (when it bombed during limited engagements in 7 of 8 cities), and was later re-released as a midnight movie where the audience participation really began to flourish. And by the way, for the "gore sensitive", Rocky Horror is NOT a horror film. It is a rock-musical send-up of old science-fiction and horror films.

Five Women Wearing the Same Dress by Alan Ball

Five Women Wearing the Same Dress by Alan Ball
"THE STORY: During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee, estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. They are Frances, a painfully sweet but sheltered fundamentalist; Mindy, the cheerful, wise-cracking lesbian sister of the groom; Georgeanne, whose heartbreak over her own failed marriage triggers outrageous behavior; Meredith, the bride's younger sister whose precocious rebelliousness masks a dark secret; and Trisha, a jaded beauty whose die-hard cynicism about men is called into question when she meets Tripp, a charming bad-boy usher to whom there is more than meets the eye. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent and touching celebration of the women's spirit."
An irreverent and funny look at the intricacies of friendship and the power of similar dressing. "…[a] wonderfully entertaining play…" —NY Post. 
"FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS is a fresh-as-a-daisy comedy, funny as can be…" —NY Daily News. 
"Ball has the comic writer's requisite talent for dialogue that ricochets snappily around the stage." —TheaterWeek.
--Dramatist Play Service, Inc.
