The 2012-2013 VSU Theatre & Dance Season
(Subject to Change)
The box office hours are Mon-Sat, 2-5 pm.
A chamber play of monologues and ensemble pieces about women, clothes and memory covering all the important subjects – mothers, prom dresses, mothers, buying bras, mothers, hating purses and why we only wear black. LOVE, LOSS AND WHAT I WORE is based on the bestselling book of the same name by Ilene Beckerman.
October 4-6, 2012 at 7:30 PM
Once again, Sawyer Stage will be alive with expressive movement through a variety of dance genres. This year’s annual concert presents fresh works and renewed repertoire choreographed by VSU’s Dance faculty for the VSU Repertory Dance Company.
November 8-10, 12-14, 2012
A rousing comedy combining elements of music, dance, and fantasy, one of Moliere’s most popular works follows the tale of a newly rich bourgeoisie merchant who would like to be a part of the nobility. Humor abounds as he seeks to learn philosophy, dancing and singing skills so he can enter the upper class.
March 28 – 30, April 1-3, 2013 at 7:30 PM
Once upon a time, a young prince longed to discover the secret of true happiness and fulfillment. He sought it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, he found it in the simple pleasures of home and family.PIPPIN, as created by as original director/choreographer Bob Fosse, is a hip, tongue-in-cheek, anachronistic fairy tale that captivated Broadway audiences and continues to appeal to the young at heart everywhere. The energetic pop-influenced score by three-time Oscar®-winning composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz (GODSPELL, CHILDREN OF EDEN, and the animated films Pocahontas, The Hunchback Of Notre Dame and The Prince Of Egypt) bursts with one show stopping number after another, from soaring ballads to infectious dance numbers.
EMERGING ARTISTS SHOWCASE
Sawyer Theatre, First Floor VSU Fine Arts Building
VSU Theatre and Dance Audiences have long enjoyed watching our students as they progress through their programs of study. Last year’s first showcase met with great response. Now audiences can enjoy a performance of musical theatre or dance performance or both as graduating seniors from the musical theatre program and student choreographers from the dance program make their “final” presentations. Each performance of the showcase will spotlight our outstanding students.
Proceeds from these events go to The Golden Circle Scholarship & Support Fund to provide scholarships for outstanding students in the Theatre and Dance degree programs.

Back by popular demand this year is CINDERELLA. In addition to the beautiful score by Prokofiev, the production will feature elegant ballerinas, a charming prince and a pair of less-than lovely stepsisters.
DANCING WITH THE VALDOSTA STARS
A unique collaborative fundraiser between VSU’s Music Department and Theatre & Dance Area was the talk of the town last year and together these degree programs are presenting an encore event this year. Come enjoy the efforts of a new group of local stars and their experts as they present a variety of ballroom dance styles and seek your “vote$” for the evening’s big prize, the Audience Favorite Award.
