75th Anniversary

CELEBRATE | CONNECT | CREATE

During the 2015–2016 season and academic year, the School of Drama celebrated its 75th Anniversary—a season that sought to CELEBRATE the School’s past, CONNECT more deeply with the region’s theatre artists, and CREATE a laboratory for the field of performing arts. Our family of alumni and supporters joined us in this ambitious programmatic undertaking.

It was a varied and diverse season that fostered new play cultivation and prominently featured the creative work of women and people of color. Many of the plays were collaborations and/or co-productions with theatres that have grown out of the School or been significantly impacted by the School’s alumni, including ACT Theatre, Azeotrope, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, PearlDamour, Seattle Repertory Theatre, Seattle Children’s Theatre, Washington Ensemble Theatre, and more.

The year culminated in an all-class reunion May 7–9, 2016. Explore the options below to learn more about the season and events. We look forward to seeing you for the next 75!
