Furman Theatre Announces 2020-2021 Shows

You might notice that the Season Announcement looks a little different this year. In the hopes of staying agile in the time of Coronavirus, we’re holding off on scheduling our productions. And, in the interest of flexibility, we have several other options in place to ensure our students get practical theatre experience this season. Once we know more about university planning, we’ll get that information to you. Your safety, and the safety of our students, will be our top concern while we plan for Playhouse Fifty-One!

Season Tickets available August 3, 2020.
