ARTISTS OF THE FUTURE: NEW WORKS!
Help UC San Diego Theatre and Dance students bring boldly original theatre and dance performances to life! Please give generously to support The Wagner New Play Festival and New Directions 2020.
The Wagner New Play Festival showcases some of the most exciting new plays being written today. UC San Diego playwrights are making a name for themselves Off Broadway and in regional theatres nationally. The plays by our MFA playwrights represent a wide range of original voices and stories. The Wagner New Play Festival is cultivating a new generation of playwrights who are already transforming the landscape of American theatre. The Festival showcases exceptional talents of our MFA actors, directors, designers, and stage managers as they bring these new plays to life.
New Directions 2020 is a showcase for our very talented undergraduate dancers and choreographers. With expressive embodiment these original dances capture ideas and emotions of our students in 2020. New Directions gives dance students a platform to develop and expand their vision and tell vivid and original stories through dance.
The UC San Diego Theatre and Dance program produces professional-quality state of the art performances in San Diego. We are one of the top five theatre training programs in the country, offering a BA in theatre or in dance, MFA degrees in acting, design, directing, playwriting, stage management, as well as a Ph.D. in theatre.
Hands-on performing arts experience is the key to our students’ growth as visionary professionals. New Work forms the core mission at Theatre & Dance. New Work reflects our students’ response to the most important issues of our time. Theatre and Dance productions are not only dazzling displays of artistry, but bring our diverse communities together for discovery and dialogue.
Your heartfelt support of New Works will ensure that our students will dream big and create superb productions.
