ALL LIVE EVENTS ARE CANCELED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, CHECK BELOW FOR DIGITAL EVENTS

In an effort to minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19 in the community, Chancellor Henry Yang announced on Tuesday, March 10th that the UC Santa Barbara campus will be transitioning to remote instruction for the remainder of Winter Quarter and the start of Spring Quarter, through the end of April at the earliest. Even though our students, faculty, and staff worked tirelessly to produce and present spring quarter events, we have to put the safety of our community at the forefront and cancel all spring quarter events unless something significantly changes.

In case we are able to safely present any of our canceled events, we will let you know through our website and email communication (if you want to stay in touch with us during these challenging times please SUBSCRIBE HERE).

Announcements

When the world is social distancing and our community is missing the art daily created at UCSB Theater/Dance, dance professor Monique Meunier wanted to provide an inspirational video.

Usually, the production team in the department specializes in bringing art to life. Today, they're creating masks for health care workers.

24 LAUNCH PAD alumni professional playwrights answer the call to energize spring quarter with a Zoom festival of monologues and short plays on Saturday, June 6, 2020. More details to follow.

With great sadness we share that Diane Rodriguez, distinguished alumna of the department and dear friend, passed away on April 10th.
