Directed by Assistant Professor Noah Lelek, "Constellations" is a spellbinding, romantic journey that begins with a simple encounter between a man and a woman. But what happens next defies the boundaries of the world we think we know – delving into the infinite possibilities of their relationship and raising questions about the difference between choice and destiny and our ideas about the true nature of time and space.

Feb. 10-14: Electra
The spring semester opens in February with the world premiere of a new translation of Sophocles’ Electra. Ariana Cook, a TWU alumna and managing director for Cara Mia Theatre, will direct. Cook and her translator, Branden Kosch, Ph.D., of the University of Dallas, will collaborate to produce a new and powerful interpretation of Sophocles’ classic tragedy of a woman’s unquenchable rage and her revenge against a society that insists on silencing her. Electra runs February 10-14, 2021.
Apr. 8-11: On the Town
The season will conclude in April with Patrick Bynane, Ph.D., directing the Broadway classic On the Town. Leonard Bernstein’s first musical follows the misadventures of three sailors on 24 hours of shore leave in New York City. The young men follow their hearts into trouble and romance. On the Town is a co-production between the TWU Theatre Program and the Department of Music and will be presented in the century-old Margo Jones Auditorium April 8-11, 2021.
Most performances are planned to take place in Redbud Theatre, located on the northwest side of historic Hubbard Hall on the university’s Denton campus. Tickets for shows are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. TWU Theatre will continue to offer a “pay-what-you-can” option for Saturday 2 p.m. performances. Pricing and venues are subject to change due to COVID-19 safety policies and restrictions.
