  4. Presenting the 2016-17 Radford University Theatre Season »


    The Radford University Department of Theatre and Cinema proudly announces an exciting season 2016-17 that asks “What’s your history?” Whether it is keeping a diary to have something sensational to read in the train or to chronicle one of history’s greatest tragedies, the thread running through the season is that many of the characters, in his or her own way, are intent on recording and sharing their stories. Two young women want to keep track of their romances; a young man needs to work through a life-altering mistake. A feisty little girl is determined to track the travails of first grade and another student must complete a paper for a grade. Two of the characters are compelled to write by lives and forces outside their control. And all of them and the department of Theatre want to share these stories with you!
