EMU Theatre 2021–2022 Season Update and Vaccine Requirements

We're back!

It has been a while, and we have missed you all! EMU Theatre is thrilled to announce that our 2021-2022 season is returning to live performance! As we move forward, we ask that you forgive any inconvenience while we navigate creating theatre in the world of COVID. As per university mandate, masks will be required for all who attend EMU Theatre productions. Additionally, social distance protocols will be in place; thus, house capacity will be limited. As updated information is received, it will be shared here and on our social media. Our current season can be found here.

Vaccination requirements for students participating in EMU Theatre:

All students participating in EMU Theatre productions and activities courses must be vaccinated against COVID-19. This policy includes student volunteers, student employees, and student interns working with the course or program.

Fortunately, the COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and free. Unfortunately, COVID-19 continues to spread and evolve, and the nature of the activities identified above create a higher risk of exposure to COVID-19. This policy is designed to reflect these important distinctions and help ensure a safe and successful year for students participating in EMU Theatre productions and activities courses.

Please be sure to visit our productions page for more details and information on vaccination requirements.

The S.I.T. Campaign: Seats in Theatres

The School of Communication, Media & Theatre Arts needs your help to replace all seats in both the Legacy and Sponberg Theatres. We are seeking to raise a minimum of $200,000 between September, 2019 and August, 2020.

You can help us reach our goal by making a gift for individual or multiple seats in one or both theatres. Or you can make a contribution of any size to support this important cause.

News & Announcements

  • Last spring, the COVID-19 outbreak forced EMU Theatre to cancel the final two productions of its 2019-2020 season. With continuing uncertainty regarding the spread of the virus, and the paramount need to ensure the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and patrons, EMU Theatre has produced its 2020-2021 season virtually. Auditions, rehearsals, and performances have been accomplished via online formats. Plans for the 2021-22 season will be reevaluated as revised pandemic data emerges. At present, scheduling for all other special events is pending, including the John Charles Retirement event and S.I.T. Campaign celebration that was initially slated for June 2020. Find out about events, auditions, student competitions, and calendars for the School of Communication, Media & Theatre Arts via our bi-weekly newsletter, Tuesday News.
