Wayland University Theatre Season of Plays




2013-2014 Productions


Please join us for our Homecoming production of ...

The Voice of the Prairie    by John Ollive

October 10-12, 2013 @ 7:30 pm

As the play begins, an old man named Poppy is telling a tall tale.  In the early 1890's itinerant storytellers like Poppy are the voices of the prairie... that is until the invention of the radio!

"Endearing." N.Y.Times. 

"A skillful play with a deft heart." L.A.Times


Shorts XVII

November 14-16 @ 7:30 pm

WOW-- 17 years of SHORTS! What were you doing 17 years ago?? The cicadas buzzing in the trees right now remember... and they are buzzing with the news! As always, students direct, design, and perform in this collection of short plays that create a very entertaining evening in the theater.


Circle, Mirror, Transformation   by Annie Baker

February 27- March 1 @ 7:30 pm

Winner of the 2010 Obie Award for best new American play, four lost adults enroll in Marty's six week long community-center drama class and begin to experiment with harmless games. 

"Smartly, sneakily, Baker gives us the rare theatrecentric play that's not self-absorbed.  [This play] is about real people exploring their lives through tiny leaps of faith and creativity."  Backstage


Christian University Theatre Festival

March 3-6

Wayland will NOT be hosting the annual festival this year.  Please contact the Howard Payne Theatre Department if you are interested in coming to Brownwood, Texas to see any of these shows.  Season ticket holders will be admitted at no additional charge to ALL of these productions.


Sacramento Mountain Theatre Collaborative presents...

The Nerd     by Larry Shue

June 6

Spencer Theatre in Alto , New Mexico

Join us for the ninth year of the Sacramento Mountain Theatre collaborative, held just outside beautiful Ruidoso, New Mexico, in the extraordinary Spencer Theater. 

The playwright who gave us Grandma Duck is Dead and The Foreigner is at it once again with what is arguably his funniest play yet.  Imagine that after many years an old friend shows up to your birthday party but will not go home.  Add to that, that this friend is driving everyone you know crazy, and you'll have some idea of the nightmare of hilarity that awaits Willum Culbert as he battles the Nerd. 

"...the audience almost never stops laughing --handkerchiefs wiping away tears of merriment..."  Variety
