Summer Theatre

Summer SOUP is theatre by the ​s​eat of ​ou​r ​p​ants.

A SOUP aesthetic means that we encourage ideas to simmer beyond the classroom and outside of the University Theatre season. We choose new plays or projects with opportunities for abbreviated, intense student engagement. We apply practical solutions creatively, with minimal resources. We offer most of the production roles (design, stage management, acting, etc.) to current UO students or recent graduates and provide artistic guidance through faculty direction. Collaboration and outreach are essential to the program. We invite the campus and Eugene community to join us by giving free tickets to everyone. Summer SOUP aims to satisfy artistic hunger in the summer months with a hearty blend of challenging content, ingenuity, communal effort, and theatrical adventure.

Summer SOUP is back for 2018! Four projects in four months!

We are excited to announce auditions for the first two shows of Summer SOUP! They will be held on Saturday, April 28 from 12-2. Please prepare both a one-minute contemporary comedic monologue and also 30 seconds of a song, a cappella. Look for a sign-up sheet on the board outside the Pocket. For designers and technicians, application information for those positions is forthcoming!
