Theatrical Performances

The Addams Family

Thursday–Saturday, September 29–30, 2023 • 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, October 1, 2023 • 3 p.m.
Green Center, Moore Theatre

They’re a little kooky, but the Addams — Morticia, Gomez, Fester, Pugsley, Grandma, Lurch and Thing — believe in “family first and family last.” So, when daughter Wednesday becomes secretly engaged to Lucas, her family reluctantly agrees to host a dinner party for his very conservative parents. 

Join this spooky esprit de corpse — along with the ghosts of the Addams ancestors — as they try to pull off “one normal night” for Wednesday and the prospective in-laws!!


The Little Prince

Thursday–Saturday, Feb. 29–March 2, 2024 • 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, March 3, 2024 • 2 p.m.
Green Center, Moore Theatre

Based on the beloved book by French author Antoine de Saint-Expuréy, British composer Rachel Portman’s The Little Prince imagines a child prince who has fallen to Earth from a tiny asteroid! Upon meeting a stranded airplane pilot, they explore Earth together, witnessing many unusual characters and animals along the way and, eventually, learning many lessons about honesty and empathy from their experiences — a gentle reminder that “one sees clearly only with the heart.” For this fully staged production with orchestra, all performances will be sung in English and include supertitles.


DePauw Opera

DePauw Opera sustains a long history of preparing large works performed by a cast of all-undergraduate singers. With coaching by staff accompanists and stage direction by not only in-house faculty but professional guest directors, the standard for DePauw Opera can be shown through fully staged and costumed productions like Cendrillon (Massenet), Street Scene (Kurt Weill), Little Women (Mark Adamo), Dido and Aeneas (Purcell) and dozens more full productions both in English and in the work's original language with supertitles. DePauw Opera focuses on providing opportunities for as many students as possible as each opera is most often produced with double casting and full orchestra in the Green Center’s Moore Theatre.
