On Stage


Dael Orlandersmith's two-character memory-play offers a disquieting, inspiring, and ultimately destructive tale of two African-American characters, Alma and Eugene. Their independent dreams and intersecting stories come face to face, both with racial stereotypes leveled toward black women and black men, and with the intra-racial bigotry associated with having light versus dark skin within the African-American community. "Yellowman" was a 2002 Pulitzer Prize finalist in Drama. The production will play November 22-24 in Sponberg Theatre. Suggested for mature audiences.

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 Quirk 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.
