Many of the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance’s winter performances will be held at venues throughout Oakland and Macomb counties, in addition to performances being held on the OU campus.

Due to ongoing renovations at Oakland University, many of the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance’s winter performances will be held at venues throughout Oakland and Macomb counties, in addition to performances being held on the OU campus.

“As Varner Hall is being renovated top to bottom, the School of Music, Theatre and Dance is excited to be ‘On Tour’ in the coming semester, performing in various venues around the greater Oakland area,” said Kerro Knox 3, professor of theatre and interim director of the School of Music, Theatre and Dance. “It will be great to be giving our students the opportunities to be seen in new spaces as we await the updated facilities we have become used to.”
