Now is a time to give and stand united in the face of unprecedented need. It is during this national emergency that we come together to support the things we care most about. 

Thank you to every person whose deep commitment to the Department of Theatre at OSU means we can continue making a notable difference in the lives of our students and community. We are honored to stand with you during these challenging times. 

Almost two weeks ago we came together on Zoom to celebrate our OSU Theatre Department. We are still basking in the glow of our awards night and celebration of the hard work that went into the creation of Bye Bye Birdie, our Spring musical shut down by COVID-19. Like many theatres across the world we have closed our doors, but the show goes on. OSU Theatre, in the same spirit of Oklahoma State, is made up of the toughest, most talented folks who never give up when faced with a challenge. Our students, backed up by the most talented faculty and staff, will keep on inventing ways for you to enjoy the power of theatre and live performance. In these uncertain times, we will continue bringing you live meaningful, delightfully entertaining LIVE performances. Help us make our students’ invention of the next forms of theatre come true. As a token of our gratitude for all that you have done to support us, please enjoy the encore video below of our tribute to the stars of our department and our cancelled Bye Bye Birdie. 

Please give to our Theatre Excellence Fund today to ensure the future success of our students and programs. With support like yours, with you in the wings, anything is possible.


Last week, meeting social distancing challenges head on, our students, using an online platform, put on a stage reading of their new play, Walter and Barney. We will make their encore video available to you soon. Give now so their dreams can flourish tomorrow.


This week our students overcame the extra challenges of online learning and innovated live final class performances for Acting for Camera, Movement and Acting III. We invite you to join us on Zoom this week to view and Give to OSU Theatre.


Today we celebrate the strength and power of theatre across the world that is so important to who we are as a civilization. Theatre defines who we are as a society. I know you agree. Click the link below and give. 

“I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.” ― Oscar Wilde


Today is the day we decide what truly is important in our lives. If you agree with me that the work we do here at OSU Theatre is important to who we are as a community, as a country, as a society, and in the world. Your Support means the world to us, thank you. You belong in OSU Theatre.


Thank You!

Head Of Theatre 

In case you missed our Socially Resposible & Virtually Distant Award Night, you can watch it below! In light of social distancing under Covid-19, we were unable to host our live performance of Bye Bye Birdie, A Musical Comedy and Musical Miscast. This online tribute was to celebrate our students' achievements, as well as showcase some of the incredible work we have been developing this semester. Thank you for supporting OSU Theatre! We appreciate each and every one of you!!!

That means you will have access to twice as many opportunities. We will fill your head with knowledge and then place you in emerging positions in your profession.
