Theatre at Mary Baldwin

The Mary Baldwin University Theatre Department, in the Fletcher Collins Theatre, plays host to five or more student productions a year. This versatile and intimate black box theatre produces dramas, comedies, experimental plays, and at least one musical per academic year. It is also home to the biennial student-directed One Act Festival held during May Term. As one of the many local theaters in the Staunton area, the Mary Baldwin Theatre Department is a haven for the avid theatre-goer.

Blood Wedding
By Frederico Garcia Lorca
Directed by Doreen Bechtol

Based on a true story of a young woman who abandons her husband on their wedding day, Lorca’s 20th-century classic captures the elemental forces of buried passions, betrayal, and revenge.
