2017-2018 Season

Photomosaic of AU Theatre women over the years; titled Letting in the Light

This academic year marks the 104th season of theatre at Auburn University as well as the 125th anniversary of women on Auburn’s campus. Our theme for this season — “Letting in the Light” — inspired by famed theatre director and devisor Anne Bogart, recognizes the many, varied contributions of women both to the Auburn University community and to Auburn University Theatre. On stages and catwalks, in booths and shops and classrooms, women have made invaluable contributions to the vibrancy of the arts on Auburn’s campus. Our 2017-2018 season celebrates this labor by showcasing the work of women playwrights and choreographers alongside other works from the theatrical cannon that tell women’s stories.

Photo: Women of AU Players (1921). This and other “photomosaic” images for this season have been created from a specially-curated database of over 1,000 photos of Auburn theatre women through the years.
