Everyone is Welcome at Washburn Theatre

Theatre tells the story of what it means to be human. We crave a better understanding of ourselves and our world, seeking what it means to be human today, in the past, and what our future might look like. Theatre is a way to process the human experience, to give value to our day to day lives, to make visible what has been unseen. In modern theatre, the experiences of the person next door are just as noteworthy, valuable, and visible as the stories of kings and queens or others with power from historical western theatre forms. Washburn University Theatre is committed to sharing these stories.
