UMBC Theatre Guest Artists


Theatre students in a 2017 storytelling workshop with visiting guest performer Daniel Beaty.

Every season UMBC Theatre brings guest artists to campus to work alongside resident faculty to mount our extraordinary productions. These professionals enrich our students’ training with their expertise and provide them with a window on the professional world. These university collaborations often grow into off-campus projects and job opportunities — the interplay between course work, creative research, and professional community is one of the hallmarks of our department and UMBC. Visiting guest performers and playwrights regularly visit campus to share their creative work and knowledge on stage and through workshops with students.

Below is just a selection of the dozens of guest artists who have joined us at UMBC. To see more, visit our Past Seasons page.
