How to find us

Many music performances are held either in Seabrook Auditorium or in the Rosenthal Building, which are buildings adjacent to each other at the corner of Murchison Road and W.T. Brown Drive at the main entrance of the campus. The Rosenthal Art Gallery is located in the Rosenthal Building. Parking for both buildings is located behind Seabrook Auditorium.

Most of our theatre performances take place in Butler Theater, which can be accessed on the first floor of the G.L. Butler Building at the heart of campus. Sidewalks lead up from the parking area to the breezeway connecting the two halves of the Butler Building.

Parking for Butler Theater is available in the lot adjacent to the Butler Building and the Chestnutt Library at the junction of W.T. Brown Drive and Administration Drive.

MAIN STAGE

NOVEMBER 14-17
The Dining Room
By A.R. Gurney
Directed by Phoebe Hall

A brilliantly conceived and richly humorous theatrical tour de force (and Off-Broadway success) in which six (or more) performers portray a wide array of diverse characters as they delineate the dying lifestyle of the wealthy. The play is set in the dining room of a typical well-to-do household, the place where the family assembled daily for breakfast and dinner and for any and all special occasions. The action is comprised of a mosaic of interrelated scenes-some funny, some touching, some rueful-which, taken together, create an in-depth portrait of a vanishing species: the upper-middle-class.

APRIL 24-27
Lysistrata
By Aristophanes
Adapted/Dir. by Phoebe Hall

lysistrata

A horribly wasteful war is underway between Athens and Sparta. The women of both sides, led by Athenian Lysistrata, conspires to compel a peace by withholding sex thereby inflaming foolishly stubborn by very lonely husbands and lovers with lust. Their plan provides much ribald humor as all of Greece tries to live happily ever after. Originally performed in 411 BC, the play is a comic account of one woman's determination to end the War. Lysistrata persuades the women of Greece to withhold sexual privileges from husbands and lovers as a means of forcing men to negotiate for peace - a tactic that adds fuel to the flames in the battle between the sexes.

SECOND STAGE

SEPTEMBER 13-14 and JANUARY 17-18
24-Hour Theater Project
Butler Theater 7:30pm
Admission: $2 or $1 plus a canned good.

Plays written, rehearsed, and produced in one 24 hour period by FSU students, faculty, and staff as well as the larger Fayetteville community. If you'd like to participate as a writer, actor, director, designer, or technician, email jfiebig@uncfsu.edu. Recommended for mature audiences.


velveteen

FEBRUARY 13-15 (performances at 9:30 and 11am on THURSDAY AND FRIDAY; Saturday at 2pm)

The Velveteen Rabbit

Based on the story by Margery Williams

Seabrook Auditorium

Toys come alive as soon as the humans leave the room in the beloved children's classic and forerunner to the Toy Story movies. Follow the velveteen rabbit and his boy on adventures that transform each one.


colored museum

FEBRUARY 13-16 (performances Thurs-Sat at 7:30pm and Sunday at 3pm)

The Colored Museum

By George C. Wolfe

Directed by FSU theatre students

Both a satire and an experiment, Wolfe's landmark work, The Colored Museum, explores, lampoons, disturbs, and celebrates African American history through a series of hilarious, challenging, and moving vignettes. At once inspirational and troubling, Wolfe's work explores life for African Americans. Actors regularly speak to the audience and the piece speaks to other great works in African American dramatic literature, from 'A Raisin in the Sun' to 'For Colored Girls...' Recommended for mature audiences.
