2019-2020 Performance Schedule

Welcome to the performance schedule for our 2019-2020 production season! We are pleased to offer complimentary tickets for all of our performances, and we welcome High Point and surrounding Triad community members to join us on campus at one of our shows.

Tickets are available to be reserved online 2-3 weeks prior to opening night, and all seating is general admission. There are handicapped accessible/wheelchair seats at both of our theatres. We encourage you to sign up for our email list to receive a notification when tickets go live for each of our shows. 

Our Department works as a Company – where students and faculty work alongside each other on each and every production. Our students are involved in every aspect of producing our productions, from designing lights and sounds, constructing sets, stitching costumes, stage managing, and of course performing! We welcome students from all majors to audition and be involved – not just those majoring or minoring in Theatre or Dance.

We look forward to welcoming you to one of these outstanding productions, each chosen carefully to provide educational opportunities for our campus community, to match and challenge the talents of our incredible Company, and to showcase different and special work in the Triad of North Carolina.

These Shining Lives

By Melanie Marnich

Directed by Doug Brown

Performances at 7:30pm October 3-9.

These Shining Lives chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance. Catherine and her friends are dying, it’s true; but theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits—or endanger the lives of those who come after them.

Free tickets are available on our website starting on September 11, 2019. You may sign up for an email reminder when tickets are available at

Bright Star (Broadway Musical)

by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell

Directed by Jay Putnam

November 14, 15, 16 at 7:30 and Nov 17 at 2:00

Inspired by a real event and featuring the Grammy-nominated score by Steven Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past – and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. Propelled by an ensemble of onstage musicians and dancers, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies and powerfully moving performances. An uplifting theatrical journey that holds you tight in its grasp, Bright Star is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.

Free tickets are available on our website starting on October 28, 2019. You may sign up for an email reminder when tickets are available at
