On behalf of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi's Department of Theatre and Dance, I would like to invite you to join us for our 2016-2017 award winning theatre season. Not only do we want you, our patrons, on the edge of your seat, but we want you to share a theatre experience with our students in works written by celebrated award-winning writers from across global stages.
We'll begin the season by joining forces with SAMC: School of Arts, Media, and Communication and Corpus Christi Ballet by hosting the 17th Annual BAILANDO DANCE FESTIVAL featuring guest artists from as far away as Costa Rica. Fresh from wowing audiences in Chicago, join us in October for award-winning playwright David Rabe's amazing new script, GOOD FOR OTTO. In November--a feast for the entire family is Tony-winning PETER AND THE STARCATCHER. The play upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). You don't want to miss it! In March, it will be time to re-live the horrors of high school in the eighties with the brand production HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL. The Obie Award-winning CLOUD NINE, by the legendary British playwright, Caryl Churchill, closes out our season with an exploration of sexual oppression using satire and language.
We're very excited about our 2016-2017 season. We strive to offer our students and our community a varied program and we think we have done just that. We hope that you'll come join us on the island! We look forward to seeing you.
