CSUSB Presents our 2020-2021 Season of Love, Hope, and Change

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans” - John Lennon (via Allen Saunders)

CSUSB’s Department of Theatre Arts is back with our 2020-2021 Season of Love, Hope, and Change.

As the weird, wild ride of 2020 continues, we are facing head-on the many challenges and steep learning curves that building a season of theatrical performances, while distance learning, is creating... but of course this is theatre, and the show must go on!

There have been some changes to our planned schedule of performances. First and foremost, we have made the difficult decision to cease production on Once Upon A Mattress as many of our principal actors have graduated, and professor Tom Provenzano begins his retirement. Additionally, Love Letters and PPG reunion has been postponed once again until our spring semester.

Our new performance schedule includes two devised productions that will be created and recorded via the Zoom platform. These plays will be released on line for all our patrons and subscribers to enjoy, with the hope that we will return to the Barnes stage for the spring semester.

We understand there is a chance these plans may be altered once again, but rest assured if we’re allowed to perform, the well-being of our patrons and students is paramount, and we will adhere to all necessary protocols to keep everyone safe.

With the fluid state of our upcoming season, we’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue subscription renewals this year, though we will still offer our subscribers their normal season ticket discount for their individual ticket purchases.
