Marat Sade_UVM Theatre

Marat Sade - Fall 2014

Under normal circumstances UVM Theatre would be presenting three mainstage shows each academic year, 2 productions in the fall semester and 1 production in the spring semester. In addition, there is also a production presented in early December with a holiday theme appropriate for people of all ages and the Spring Festival of Plays in April. The Festival is comprised of senior thesis projects.

Auditions are open to all UVM students. In some cases professional actors serve as guest artists on productions or community members are cast in order to fulfill the needs of a particular show.


Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic the Royall Tyler Theatre box office is closed. Information about live theatre and dance performances presented by the department is unavailable at the present time.

If you have any questions or would like additional information please email

Thank you for your support of the UVM Department of Theatre and Dance.
