This summer we will be back on the outdoor stage at the Theatre of the Big Bend. We will be doing two live radio productions. The first is Failure: A Love Story, by Philip Dawkins. The story takes place in 1928 Chicago and follows the lives of the three Fail sisters. Join us for the story of Nelly, Jenny, June, and Gerty as they live out their lives above the family clock repair shop near the Chicago River before their time unexpectedly runs out. A magical, musical fable where, in the end, the power of love is far greater than any individual’s successes or failures. The second production will be an original show co-written by Assistant Professor, Bret Scott and BFA Theatre Major, Avery Callaway and will be a live radio variety show, complete with songs, sketches and commercials.

Latest News:

We are so proud, two of our students were awarded Meritorious Achievement for Excellence in Playwriting by the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, Region 6.  Avery Callaway for his play Quarantine PSA and Brian Phillip Welch for his play Anne as part of Teníamos Todo (We had Everything), the world premiere of short plays just released online by Sul Ross Theatre Program. 

Additionally, Emma Morales and Gabrielle Ivey won Meritorious Achievement for Excellence in Acting for their roles in Teníamos Todo. We are so proud of the excellent work all of our students contributed to this production.

We have also been invited to present some of the short plays in February via a virtual festival hosted by KCACTF, stay tuned for more details!

Teníamos Todo. (We Had Everything) opens the 2020/2021 season for the Sul Ross Theatre Program. This was a collaboration between professional playwrights and Sul Ross Theatre students, Teníamos Todo (We Had Everything), is an original, bilingual series of short scenes and monologues about Texans and the way they are coping with the “new normal” of life during a pandemic. Teníamos Todo (We Had Everything) was released on streaming platforms beginning November 24, and is still available for your viewing.

The theatre program at Sul Ross is guided by the philosophy that students will graduate with a university - level understanding of theatrical production.  It is driven by a passionate team of professors and students who create an inviting and engaging environment for learning the craft.

Sul Ross offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Theatre and a Minor in Theatre. Even if they've never set foot on a stage before, students are welcomed and immersed in all aspects of theatre, everything from writing plays to directing to the many details of production and even the promotion surrounding the performance.



Their skills are finely tuned and they are offered opportunities that wouldn't be as accessible at many other schools' programs. Sul Ross puts on a number of productions throughout the year with four key areas in mind: playwriting, musical theatre, bilingual theatre, and children's theatre.   Students learn the art of playwriting and take on the process of developing original works from script to stage. 











Sul Ross Theatre also teaches the value of working across programs to produce musical theatre and expanding a student's repertoire to the particulars of children's theatre. Off Campus, the program is also very involved with the local community of Alpine, Texas and produces the Theatre of the Big Bend, a series of outdoor repertory performances through the summer against the beautiful backdrop of Far West Texas.
