Season Shows

Looking for the excitement of acting in front of a live audience? Audition for a show! All SUNY Oneonta students are encouraged to audition for department productions. Roles are not reserved for theatre majors only.

Identity Play Reading

The Identity Play Reading series is a faculty-advised, student-driven initiative that presents staged readings of plays about diversity, inclusion, and individuality. The series celebrates plays that turn a spotlight on the differences that delineate us from each other, and that give unique voices a chance to be heard.

The Identity Play Reading committee meets on Fridays at 2:30pm in the Goodrich Theater lobby of the Fine Arts Center. Anyone interested is welcome to attend and help the committee select scripts and organize readings. Auditions are scheduled and announced in advance of readings. If you are interested in participating in the Identity Play Reading series join the committee at one of its weekly meetings or contact faculty advisor Andrew Kahl at

Directing Scenes

Every spring, students enrolled in the Directing course cast students from the SUNY Oneonta community to perform in class projects consisting of scenes and short plays. Look for auditions to be posted on the Call Board every March.
