“SEIZE THE DAY“
Season 2023-24: MOMENTS THAT TRANSFORM US
NOTE FROM KEVIN GLACCUM, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR:
Seize the Day. Carpe Diem. Live in the moment. These phrases encourage us to live life to the fullest. Arcadia Theater’s 2023-24 season tells stories of people whose lives were changed in an instant. Whether by accident or on purpose, characters in these plays make decisions that have consequences, both positive and negative, that they hadn’t anticipated. These four productions will underline the importance of rising to the challenges life presents, of going beyond our comfort zone so that we may fully embrace life.
Arcadia University Theater provides the community with a season of professional quality productions that showcase the talents, passions, and dedication of our student artists. Productions are directed, designed, and choreographed by professional artists from Philadelphia’s vibrant theater scene.
