This fall the College’s Department of Theatre Arts in the College of Arts and Sciences will provide Theatre Arts majors with the unique opportunity to perform in the professional and state-of-the-art Adrienne Arsht performance center. This is a new collaboration between UM and the Arsht Center that will enable UM students, as well as faculty and staff, to design, direct, and perform in a major professional theatrical production.

“While this innovative partnership with the UM Department of Theatre Arts is a bridge for students into a professional theater career,” said Scott Shiller, executive vice president of the Adrienne Arsht Center,  “this program with UM is at the core of the Adrienne Arsht Center’s mission to enlighten, educate, and entertain.”

For the first production, the two institutions will co-produce Federico Garcia Lorca’s “The House of Bernarda Alba,” which will begin its public run on October 12.
