University Theater/Theater and Performance Studies represents the collaborative efforts of students, staff, and faculty committed to performance at the University of Chicago. Our mission is to balance creative opportunity with professional experience by involving approximately 500 students annually in theatrical productions as actors, designers, directors and production staff.
The UT/TAPS collaboration is a symbiosis of practical and theoretical coursework with student-driven productions. UT/TAPS also supports the artistic contributions of the Dance Council (Dance), Le Vorris & Vox (Circus) The Dean's Men (Shakespeare), and Off-Off Campus (Sketch & Improv) in their 30 plus productions each year.
TAPS partners with Performing Arts Groups
