prompt, courteous attention to all costume fitting appointments,
just like rehearsal calls, is a mark of the true professional,
the Theatre Arts Department enforces the following:
Complimentary & rush tickets
Each member of the production receives two (2) complimentary tickets
that may be used for any performance during the run of the production.
Tickets must be reserved ahead of time with the box office during
regularly scheduled box office hours. Any additional tickets
being held at the box office must be paid for by cash, check or
Theatre Majors may request 1 rush ticket 5 minutes prior to the
start of the performance. Any unsold tickets may be given
to majors on a first-come basis at no cost to the students.
Season selection process
The department seeks to create performance seasons of high educational
and artistic value representing a broad range of forms and styles
to maximize the artistic and critical development of our students.
The department also strives to present plays which will contribute
to the social and cultural life of the University and the La Crosse
Each semester, requests for submissions for the upcoming season
of plays are solicited from faculty/students. The Play Selection
Committee reads and evaluates the plays based on the following criteria:
The Department of Theatre Arts is committed to developing seasons
that reflect the multicultural focus of the world around us by presenting
works from authors of different historical periods, styles, nations,
ethnicities and genders.
The University's SummerStage program was begun in 1979 as a means of
bringing semi-professional theatre each summer to the La Crosse
area. It is our mission to present high quality theatrical
productions for the University and surrounding communities.
We enlist students, theatrical professionals and local performers/designers
in the creation of our summer endeavors in an effort to expand our
academic theatre base. Auditions for SummerStage are held
in late April and are open to all UWL students, community members,
high school students, alumni and other non UWL students.
