Coronavirus Update:

In accordance with SUNY Oneonta COVID-19 requirements and procedures, we continue to rehearse and perform our 2022-2023 season shows in-person. Audiences will be invited into our theaters to enjoy these performances as allowed by SUNY Oneonta and departmental policy at the time of each performance. While we are enthusiastic about collaborating with our students to offer live theater again, we are also prepared to adjust our plan as necessary to protect the health and safety of our students and audiences. We thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you at a performance this season!

Sincerely, The SUNY Oneonta Theatre Department

“Filled with warm humor and tremendous heart, SWEAT tells the story of a group of friends who have spent their lives sharing drinks, secrets, and laughs while working together on the factory floor. But when layoffs and picket lines begin to chip away at their trust, the friends find themselves pitted against each other in a heart-wrenching fight to stay afloat.” -Dramatists Play Service

“Mark Twain wrote: ‘There are five kinds of actresses: bad actresses, fair actresses, good actresses, great actresses – and then there is Sarah Bernhardt.’ In 1899, the international stage celebrity set out to tackle her most ambitious role yet: Hamlet. Theresa Rebeck’s new play rollicks with high comedy and human drama, set against the lavish Shakespearean production that could make or break Bernhardt’s career.” -Concord Theatricals

This hilarious show takes all the elements of the cult classic films The Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness and combines them into one of the craziest theatrical experiences of all time. Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. It's all up to Ash (a housewares employee turned demon-killing hero) and his trusty chainsaw to save the day.” -Dramatic Publishing

“ ‘Sex to Change the Course of the World’ —a grad student’s online personal ad lures a mysterious journalism student to his subterranean research lab under the pretense of an evening of “no strings attached” sex. But when a major global catastrophic event strikes the planet, their date takes on evolutionary significance and the fate of humanity hangs in the balance. Will they survive? What about the fish in the tank? And who is that woman pulling levers and playing the timpani? An epic and intimate comedy that spans over billions of years, boom explores the influences of fate versus randomness in the course of one’s life, and life as we know it on the planet.” -Dramatists Play Service
