This is by far Xavier’s most ambitious season since starting their Theatre major. That’s obvious when looking at the line-up. What might not be obvious is that this production – SLUT SHAMING – the first this season opens literally three days after classes began.
When Stephen Skiles became Xavier University’s director of theater in 2012, he wasn’t exactly a newcomer. His experience and background have helped him in bringing to the school a lively and often topical series of productions, like the one that opens the new season Wednesday night, Slut Shaming. It was first staged at the 2014 Cincinnati Fringe.
In its third year as a degree program, Xavier University Theatre continues to forge ahead with its most ambitious season to date. Featuring two Broadway musicals, a Cincinnati Fringe favorite, a classic Shakespeare, a haunting small-town tragedy, a hilarious comedy and an edgy contemporary drama, Xavier Theatre’s 2016-17 season continues to be an exciting place for educational and professional collaboration.
Xavier University Theatre is proud to announce the formation of the Xavier Alumni Theatre. By creating a company of Xavier Theatre graduates, the Xavier Alumni Theatre will bring these young artists back to the school for unique, engaging and world premiere projects.
