Each year USI produces a play that employs both professional actors and a professional stage manager to work alongside University students. The Repertory Project brings members of the Actors Equity Association, the professional union of stage actors and stage managers, to work within a unique professional training environment. This joint project creates unparalleled opportunities for students within USI's Performing Arts department.
University of Southern Indiana students are able to include professional Actors Equity Association productions on their resumes even before graduating from USI—a distinction which puts the USI Performing Arts department in league with some of the country's elite theatre programs.
The 2020 Repertory Project is Brighton Beach Memoirs by Neil Simon. The production will run February 13 through 16 in the USI Performance Center and will be director by Elliot Wasserman, professor of theatre.
"Dreaming of baseball and girls, Eugene must cope with the mundane existence of his family life in Brooklyn: formidable mother, overworked father and his worldly older brother Stanley. Throw into the mix his widowed Aunt Blanche and her two young (but rapidly aging) daughters and you have a recipe for hilarity, served up Simon-style." - Samuel French
