Ashland University Theatre Schedules 2015-16 Season

Ashland University Theatre has scheduled its 2015-2016 season, which reflects on human connections through family, technology, romantic relationships and more.

From the heart-warming celebration of our nation’s pioneer women in the musical “Quilters” to our technologically obsessed world seen through the contemporary comedy “Dead Man's Cell Phone,” and concluding with Shakespeare's classic comedy about love, “A Midsummer Night's Dream” -- the season follows the words of Herman Melville: “We cannot live for ourselves alone. Our lives are connected by a thousand invisible threads, and along these sympathetic fibers, our actions run as causes and return to us as results.”
