The UTS Mission Statement
The Undergraduate Theater Society (UTS) is a student-run, not-for-profit theater company serving the wider undergraduate community at the University of Washington. As a company we strive to offer opportunities in theatrical performance, production, and education by providing human, financial, and technical resources. UTS is run by an executive board comprised of current undergraduate students and operates out of the Cabaret Theater in Hutchinson Hall. The company produces a five show season along with events such as The New Works Festival, Quarterly Workshop Series, UTS Night Out, and Theater Dangerously.
So What Does UTS do?
UTS seeks to makes the world of theatre accessible, empowering, and fun for all UW students (including majors and non-majors!). We want to make sure everyone has an opportunity to explore the many avenues of theatre production and performance; whether you're an actor, a director, a designer, or even just an audience member, we want to give UW undergrads a chance to get their feet wet in the exciting and dynamic world of theatre.
How do we do that, you ask?
Currently, UTS produces an annual season of regular shows for our mainstage season (check the current season tab to see what we're doing!), but that's just the tip of the theatre iceberg. We regularly host an assortment of workshops, social events, The New Works Festival, The UTS Night Out, and many more! Check out the FAQ tab to get more detailed info on what we're up to
Remember, everything UTS makes is done by UW students, for UW students!
What is the UTS board?
The UTS board is a team of UW students who collectively work to produce all of UTS' shows, events, and other artistic activities. Each person on the board helps shape UTS' direction for the year. In addition to a person's board duties, each board member also has a title linked to their additional work on the board - the Finance Director handles finances and budgeting, the Graphic Designer creates promo materials, and so on!
