Variety of Productions

Each school year, the McMurry Theatre Department presents four
faculty directed shows (one is usually a musical), at least two full length student
directed shows, and a slate of one act plays, directed by directing I
students. Every other year, the Theatre Department also presents an Evening
of Original One Act Plays, written by MMurry theatre students, under the
supervision of Charles Hukill. During the past 15 summers, the McMurry
Summer Dinner Theatre has presented two-three shows each summer for the
Abilene community. Many times, a guest director (often a McMurry alum)
is hired to mount these productions. This provides the students with yet
another opportunity to work with talented, trained theatre professionals.
Among the shows McMurry has produced in the past five years
include: Fiddler on the Roof,Picnic, Children of a Lesser God,
The Shadow Box, Oklahoma, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Little Shop
of Horrors, The Madwoman of Chaillot, The Grapes of Wrath,
A Midsummer Night's Dream, Once Upon a Mattress, amd A Funny Thing
Happened on the Way to the Forum.
