Play in a Day

The Student Drama Association invites you to the Halloween Edition of: Play in a Day!

A 24-hour writing/directing/acting project
Join us in the Salisbury Lab Theatre on October 25th at 7:00 PM to see the show!

Would you like to be involved?  Want to know how it all happens?
Well: At 7:00 PM on the 24th prompts will be delivered to writers who will then enjoy a night of furious scribbling until no later than 7:00 AM.  By then the scripts will have been sent to a stage manager, who will print them for the directors. Then the actors, who have signed up in advance, will come in to rehearse at 9:00 AM, and designers will be called on to find any specific props or clothing items.  By the time 7:00PM rolls around again, our series of short plays will be ready for a public showing, and you’re invited to participate!

Wanna sign up for one of the bolded positions? Contact Melissa Buchta at with “Play in a Day” in the subject line to get signed up!

Like Students, Drama, and/or Associations?  We meet every Tuesday from 1:05-1:50PM in the Theatre Department Green Room.  Located down the stairs to your left from the Great Hall, through the first door off of the graffiti hallway. Follow us on Facebook for all the latest news! 

An Inspector Calls

An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestley

On a spring evening in 1912, the prosperous middle-class Birling family is celebrating their daughter’s engagement with a small dinner party in the British industrial city of Brumley. Following dinner, the family is visited by Inspector Goole, a policeman who questions each member of the family in turn about the death of a young working-class woman. The inspector’s relentless search for answers threatens to destroy the family’s public reputation and undermines the relationships they once held dear.

SPECIAL EVENT: Split Knuckle's Endurance

Split Knuckle

Co-sponsored by Theatre UAF and the Fairbanks Concert Association

Split Knuckle is a critically acclaimed company that creates dynamic, physical, visually striking theatre from simple materials.

Trapped in Antarctica with no hope of rescue, the great British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton kept 27 men alive for two years in the most inhospitable climate on earth.

Ninety-five years later, in the worst economic meltdown since the Great Depression, Hartford insurance man Walter Spivey, struggling to justify his recent promotion and save his employees jobs, relives Shackleton's story.

Can one of the greatest leaders in human history inspire him to conquer the corporate world?

Friday-Saturday, November 21-22 at 8 p.m.

Tickets available via the FCA website:

Spring 2015

The Ashgirl, by Timberlake Wertenbaker

In a big old house Ashgirl lives huddled deep in the protection of an ashy hearth. With her mother dead, and her father away, she lives with her stepmother and two stepsisters. When the invitation to the ball arrives from the prince, Ashgirl finds the strength to go with the help of her friends, some of whom come from unexpected places.

This retelling of the classic Cinderella fairy tale is “like a mix of C.S. Lewis and Sondheim’s Into the Woods: an eclectic fairy tale anthology.” (The Guardian, London)
