Due to increasing public health concerns over COVID-19, we regret to announce that all public performances for The Good Doctor are cancelled. Regent University sincerely desires to protect the health of our students, staff, faculty, and you, our loyal audience members. Please accept our apologies for this disappointment. Note that this decision only affects The Good Doctor. We intend to proceed with the last two shows of the season as planned.

Regent University theater will present The Heiress.

The Heiress
By Ruth and Augustus Goetz

Mar. 4-7, 2021
Dede Robertson Theatre

In this classic melodrama set in the New York of the 1850s, shy and plain-looking, “unmarriageable” Catherine lives alone with her wealthy and overprotective father, Dr. Sloper. When she falls desperately in love with a penniless – and mysterious – new suitor, her father suspects a con and threatens her disinheritance should they marry. Eventually, Catherine must decide whether her new love is a schemer or a savior worth risking it all.

The Heiress is produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, New York.

Regent University theater will present The Fantasticks.

The Fantasticks
By Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones

Apr. 23-25 & Apr. 30 – May 2, 2021
Dede Robertson Theatre

The world’s longest-running musical tells the story of two neighbors who trick their children, Luisa and Matt, into falling in love by pretending to feud. A mysterious narrator and metaphorical lyrics will draw you into their world. This imaginative allegory promises to send you home humming the tunes from this wonderfully inventive score, featuring such songs as “Try to Remember,” “Never Say No,” and “Soon It’s Gonna Rain.”

The Fantasticks is presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI.) All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
