MyMBU

Theatre Department

MBU Theatre produces six shows every year, allowing our students to choose design, tech, or performance in each production. The size and variety of our theatre season allows students to tailor their education to their needs and goals.  Visit MBU Theatre on Facebook or Instagram for production photos and videos.  Tickets for upcoming productions are available here.

MBU Theatre Experience

High School Juniors & Seniors/Transfers
Come spend Friday, September 27 with us, asking questions of our theatre faculty over a cup of coffee, workshopping your audition monologues and songs, learning choreography from our upcoming production of “The Music Man” and touring the facility that you could make your home! That evening, enjoy a complementary ticket to “The 39 Steps,” our farcical take on an Alfred Hitchcock classic. October 5 come back for your audition for the MBU Theatre Program!

The MBU Theatre Experience is completely free. More than anything, we hope that by being on campus you will see what we see in our program: a thriving community of artists devoted to their craft and to each other.
