Event Series

Theater 2023–24 Season

We pride ourselves on cultivating a dynamic and supportive theater culture that encourages experimentation, collaboration, and the creation of new connections across fields. New forms of community demand stories, old stories retold, and new ones never before heard. Oberlin Theater is about telling stories by making living art.
