Theater Season

Liberty University’s upcoming theater season brings an eclectic showcase, thanks in part to the recent opening of Liberty’s Box Theater. From Broadway-caliber productions to intimate, lesser-known works, the upcoming season features more diversity in its professional and academic performance offerings than in years past. The season opened with a professional Alluvion Stage Company production of “Newsies” in its Virginia premiere.

“Wait Until Dark” – Box Theater, Oct. 13-22
“Thoroughly Modern Millie” – Tower Theater, Nov. 3-12
“Arsenic and Old Lace” – Box Theater, Dec. 1-17
