The Ohio State University at Mansfield

Welcome to Ohio State Mansfield Theatre Department

On this page you can find information for our 2020-2021 Theatre Season.

This year we can’t bring audiences to our campus, so we’re bringing the shows to you! All our performances will be online and free for everyone to enjoy.

Friends of the Theatre

Friends of the Theatre are a pillar of support for the theatre program at Ohio State Mansfield, providing funds to underwrite the costs of performance each season. Licensing fees for the content, costumes, lighting and sound upgrades are all part of the operating costs of the theater, and this year is no different.

The selections for the fall season explore themes that our society is facing AND with a presentation that is suitable to a safe production for both audience, students and performers. This year’s season has created new challenges. The titles selected are free from licensing to support accessible streaming over the internet, but the transition to a virtual experience creates additional needs for sound, visual and technical support to allow safe production for all.

The arts continue to be a vital component of our lives so this fall’s virtual performances will be provided at no charge to allow continued access. Your continued support as a Friend of the Theatre supports this continuity and enables us to bring the arts into our audiences’ homes.

Support Theatre Programs
