Out of health and safety concerns for our students, faculty and patrons, Theatre UCF has made the necessary decision not to present live performances this Fall. Instead, we will present several virtual readings that will take place throughout the Fall semester.
The first is a series of four plays that speaks, through theatre, to the importance of having a conversation about racial equality and social justice that is at the heart of the current anti-racist movement. This artistic response to current events brings to life contemporary plays that address the issues of injustice, police brutality and systemic racism against people of color. Each play in this series will be followed by a talkback with the creative team and guest speakers.
Following this series, Theatre UCF will present a virtual reading of Much Ado About Nothing with a new modern verse translation by Ranjit Bolt.
Visit the Theatre UCF production auditions page for information on how to get involved.
As we continue into the fall semester, your safety and best education are central to all decisions. Most important to those ends is communicating the most accurate and current details about how we will be operating. Some decisions are more involved than others, based on the university administration's ability to gather the most prudent data, so we value your understanding and always welcome your questions. One determination that was made recently focuses on the safety of singing and playing instruments indoors. Based in the best science currently available, the decision has been made that until conditions and/or data supports otherwise, singing and playing wind instruments should not be done indoors on campus.
With the guidance of the university, some courses will be offered in-person on campus. However, most classes will offer a way to enroll in the class remotely. For questions, first refer to www.ucf.edu/coronavirus/ and if the answer is not there, contact the instructor for the class.
