Theatre Announces 2020-2021 Season

Tigerville, SC (August 4, 2020) North Greenville University (NGU) School of the Arts announces its 2020-2021 theatre season.

"We are daring to imagine the possibilities," said NGU School of the Arts Associate Dean Amy Dunlap. "Because of the new world we find ourselves in, we are more in need of hope, joy, and laughter than ever before.  We believe in the power of story to excite the imagination and stir the soul."

Dunlap says that these shows will bring hope and inspiration, grace, and forgiveness, a celebration of the joy of being alive, and the search for the true meaning of humanity.
