Current Project

We are currently looking forward to CSU Theatre’s Fourth Annual 10-Minute Play Festival. This play festival allows students to fully participate in the play production process from start to finish. Students write and perform in all plays. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to gain production credit while in college.

We will be scheduling auditions for Tuesday, February 24 from 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. and Wednesday, February 25 from 4:00 p.m. - 6.30 p.m.! Location in Douglas Hall to be announced.
