University of Wisconsin - Richland Theatre is a campus-community theatre sponsored by the UW-Richland Department of Communication and Theatre Arts. Funded by a combination of ticket sales and student fees, UW-Richland Theatre typically produces one play a semester. Because the theatre facility is provided and maintained by the community, the production ensemble--both onstage and offstage--welcomes students and community members. This combination offers students the professional level and capabilities of an educational theatre, as well as enjoyment of the sense of "community." UW-Richland students have the opportunity to gain more experience and get more personal attention than they might receive at a larger campus, and they may work with talented and experienced mentors from the community.
