Department of Theatre announces reimagined 2019-20 season

Aug. 22, 2019

NAU’s Department of Theatre unveiled its 2019-20 season schedule seeking to tell familiar stories with a new spin. The season’s theme, Retold, Relived and Reimagined, is brought to life with four main productions.

“Each playwright in our new season is telling a familiar tell in a reimagined way,” says theatre chair Kathleen McGeever.

Seeking to restructure the student experience, the company will travel to northern Arizona schools to perform.
