University of Dayton ArtsLive
Adventurous, professional arts events, ArtsLIVE programs are open to campus and community audiences.
Hundreds of exceptional artists from around the world have presented at the University of Dayton since 1961 through ArtsLIVE, formerly known as the Arts Series. Each event or performance helps to enable us to better understand the joys and challenges of being human. ArtsLIVE is supported by the College of Arts and Sciences.
University of Dayton Theatre, Dance and Performance Technology Program
University of Dayton’s Theatre, Dance, and Performance Technology Program provides a liberal arts tradition, creating performance with purpose through interdisciplinary discovery. We engage talent in the service of community, leading through the arts to problem-solve. Through a large, diverse body of work, the Theatre Program provides a solid academic foundation plus the experience of working in a wide range of theatre productions, including mainstage productions in the Boll Theatre and experimental work in the Black Box Theatre, located on the first floor of Raymond L. Fitz Hall. Our majors are required to audition for roles and participate in each mainstage production for academic credit.
The theatre is where we discover who we are, affirm our values, aspire to be better, and seek solutions. It’s where we play “what if?” in the face of “who cares?” It’s where we engage in collaborative, creative inquiry that reminds us what it is to be human, to be flawed, to be transformed. The theatre is the site of embodied democracy, where entertainment entertains emergent ideas – because we all have stories to tell.
