HU Theatre Company Announces 2020-2021 Season
The Huntington University Theatre Company is pleased to announce the 2020-2021 Theatre Season.
“We look at a lot of different things when selecting a season, such as what actors will be returning next year, what other events are going on at HU and in the area, how the shows balance budget-wise, etc.,” said Ryan Long, chair of the Department of Theatre Arts and assistant professor of theatre. “I also try to balance contemporary and classical works so that students get a good mix of both during their time here.”
All three of this year’s shows will be making their Huntington University debut.

In addition to bringing something new to Huntington University audiences, the three shows are unique opportunities for student performers and align with the season’s theme: New Perspectives.
“Each show features characters who demonstrate viewing things from a new perspective, as well as sharing that perspective with the audience and other characters in the shows,” said Long.
