UIS Theatre

Our mission is to offer UIS students the opportunity to further develop their talents as theatre artists, by working with great dramatic literature in the classroom and on the stage.

Invest In UIS

(In the production photo above: UIS Theatre students Diamond Dixon playing “Eunice Hubbell” and Ellyn Thorson playing “Stella Kowalski” in UIS Theatre’s spring 2015 production of Tennessee Williams’ A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE.)


We foster the idea that theatre is a vital artistic event, which brings people together to respond to one another’s experiences/stories and to the world in which we live. We expose students to the work of the world’s great theatre artists.
