Theatre Society

Mission Statement

The University of Evansville Theatre Society is comprised of a group of community leaders who serve as enthusiastic, dynamic, and dedicated university theatre advocates. Through its membership and activities, the organization seeks to increase public awareness and maximize the impact of the University of Evansville Theatre in the national, regional, and local communities.

They play a vital role in many aspects of the daily life of the students and faculty, including the hosting of opening night and closing night parties; a freshmen dinner and tour of the Evansville Museum of Arts, History, and Science; a very popular Adopt-a-Student Program; a reception for graduating seniors and their families following commencement, and two yearly trips to see productions at professional regional theatres.
