Cornerstone University Theatre productions strive to embrace the artist in every student, foster the growth of the individual and bring to light their creative gifts so they can build lives that matter. We believe that we glorify the ultimate Creator when we, in His likeness, create theatre to represent and mirror life.
We stage two full-scale plays each year, including comedies, dramas, classics and modern works. In addition to our main stage season, we also offer "Second Stages Productions" – student or alumni directed and produced theatrical productions, ranging from scenes to full-length plays and musicals. Students from all academic disciplines are encouraged to take part in our shows, gaining experience in all aspects of production.
