Arts at Averett University
The Averett Theatre Players have a long history of delighting audiences of all ages. The Players typically offer three to four productions each year including a children’s show and a musical. Past performances include: “Children of Eden,” “Medea,” “Our Town,” “The Mousetrap,” “Compleat Works of Wllm Shkspr (abridged)” and “Once on This Island.”
Each year Averett’s Theatre for Young People Series introduces hundreds of school kids to the joys of live theatre. When Averett’s Theatre Players interact with their young audience members the result is magical! Past Theatre for Young People Series productions include: “Schoolhouse Rock Live!,” “Seussical the Musical” and “Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp.”
The Averett Singers delight audiences throughout the community and the region. Their vast musical repertoire ranges from “Te Deum” by Mozart to “How Can I Keep From Singing” to “Erev Shel Shoshamim” (Evening of Roses), an Israeli folksong that is sung in Hebrew.
Students in Averett’s art program are exposed to a range of studio work. Rather than concentrating on a single studio area, they build a balanced background in the visual arts. Art majors exhibit their work at the university’s annual spring art show, which is part of Arts@Averett.
