Claire Trevor Theatre

The Claire Trevor Theatre was originally known as the Village Theatre. The edifice was renovated thanks to a generous contribution by Academy Award-winning actress Claire Trevor and renamed in her honor when the updates were completed. Today, the proscenium theatre is our largest on-campus venue with seating for almost 300 persons.

Claire Trevor Theatre

Just three years after William Shakespeare’s death, botched and pirated versions of his plays are appearing all over London. His friends and company members can see just one solution: printing an official version of all his plays in a single folio edition in order to preserve them and ensure their future. Though the task seems impossible, their love for their friend, and for the transcendent wit and wonder of his plays, inspires them to persevere.

In this hard-fought contest, only one winner can drive away with the American Dream. For 10 gritty contestants, a new lease on life is so close they can touch it.  Under a scorching sun for days on end, armed with nothing but hope, humor, and ambition, they'll fight to keep at least one hand on a brand-new truck in order to win it. It's an absurd marketing gimmick at first glance, but the contest proves to be much more.
