Theatre at Cornerstone University

Stories are told through various mediums. With theatre, you can experience the full range of the human experience—humor, heartbreak, conflict and comedy. Theatre at Cornerstone University seeks to create a space for students to express themselves by presenting truths about the complexities of the human condition onstage.

Our productions include comedies, dramas, classics and modern works. There are plenty of ways to get involved with CU theatre throughout the year with mainstage shows and smaller events at the Theatre House. Whatever your comfort level with performing or participating, CU Theatre offers a way for you to express and challenge yourself.


CU Theatre typically performs two mainstage shows a year at Matthews Performing Arts Center. Each semester, CU Theatre hosts fun events like Poe Night, informal script readings and mixer activities. Aside from mainstage shows, CU Theatre also organizes smaller performances like Beneath the Willows or one-act showcases in the Corum Student Union.

Beneath the Willows

Beneath the Willows is a time-honored CU Theatre tradition that encourages students to get involved and have fun. This outdoor event takes place every fall underneath the willow trees by the pond. Beneath the Willows is open to anyone who wants to perform or direct.

Costume Rentals

Throughout the decades, CU Theatre has put on a diverse array of productions with various costume needs. We have an incredible resource of costumes, props, furniture and set pieces that community theatres are welcome to rent. To inquire about costume rentals for your upcoming production, contact Carol Anderson.
