Partnership with Merrimack Repertory Theatre
The Theatre Arts Program is proud of our vital partnership with Lowell’s acclaimed professional theatre company, the Merrimack Repertory Theatre (MRT).
Each year, we host a week-long collaborative workshop of an exciting new play to be premiered at MRT. Theatre Arts students participate alongside professional actors, director, and playwright in rehearsing and developing the script-in-progress. The week culminates in a public Staged Reading of the developed script, performed by students and professionals at UMass Lowell.
Master Classes, Lectures, And Other Events
MRT artists are frequent guests on campus, offering special workshops, master classes, and lectures within our “Theatre Lives” speaker series.
