Our small size (about that of the average repertory company) encourages collaboration and allows us to offer a great deal opportunity to develop skills and life-long friendships in a caring and well-equipped atmosphere.

The dedicated faculty, staff and spirited students of Wilkes University Theatre bring the highest quality production values to audiences in new works, classics as well as much–loved standards.

WUT’s reputation of fine work includes plays such as Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel, rarely produced works such as Philip Barry’s Hotel Universe. cutting-­‐edge musicals like Adding Machine and Dogfight as well as world premiere originals such as Le Revue Fairy Tale. Each year WUT presents a varied and full season of dramas and musicals on the main stage as well as a season of student produced black box productions.
