The UCSC Chautauqua Festival made its debut in 1979 in the Barn Theater, modeled after a tradition of theater festivals that began at Lake Chautauqua, New York, more than a century ago.
The festival is an entirely student-produced showcase of student plays and films, that takes place annually in the Spring Quarter. It is a fantastic laboratory for students to gain practical training in their desired area of focus, to have the opportunity to explore new facets of theater, and to experiment with theatrical forms and themes in a setting not bound by tradition or profit.
All Performances are at 7pm in The Barn Theater
Ticket Sales are sold at the theater. Cash or Venmo accepted.
