Current Season



The Theatre Program at Wayne State College strives to produce provocative, stimulating, and educational theatre. It is our goal to provide our students with a broad experience concerning genres, styles, historical perspectives, and challenges. To this end, we proudly announce our current season.


Two Rooms | by Lee Blessing

Provocative and compelling, this arresting work deals with a subject much in the minds of contemporary society--the taking of innocent hostages by political terrorists.  first presented by California's innovative La Jolla Playhouse, the play illuminates both the numbing agony of the one detained and also the helpless fury of those who are left behind--loved ones impatient for something to be done, and officials who feel they must be guided by logic rather than emotion. "...the playwright's eye is penetrating...[Mr. Blessing] reaffirms his authority with timely political questions" --NY Times. "...a compact and powerful exploration of the hostage-taking of Beirut." --Drama-Logue




Children's Show
Swiss Family Robinson | dramatized by James Devita

The classic tale of the family marooned on a deserted isle and who need to battle not only for survival but for their very lives from dangerous pirates.


Approximately 90 minutes in length.
