CEDAR FALLS — The University of Northern Iowa’s Theatre UNI has announced its new season of productions.
Theming the season as “Finding the Light,” the four productions seek to shine light on the human condition and ask questions about timeless themes and their relevance in today’s world.
“We chose four shows that could encourage dialogue about difficult issues while also celebrating powerful language and its ability to move us,” said Eric Lange, artistic director and department head. “One show has a talk back after a performance, and another has a lecture before the show one night. Our ‘Romeo and Juliet’ will be seen by close to 750 high school students. Our students are incredibly creative, and I’m sure they will help create a magical season.”
