Fine & Performing Arts


Art exhibits are held periodically on campus. Contact our art faculty member or director of the library Todd Roll for details.

Music & Choir

Join a campus music ensemble! The Campus Band is a credited ensemble that performs at selected campus events, and is augmented by community members to form the Campus/Community Band, which performs in concert each semester.

There are two credited choral opportunities on campus: the College Choir is a selective ensemble that is comprised of students only, while the Campus/Community Choir is open to anyone high school age or up. Both perform in concert each semester.

The campus A Capella club, the Diminuendos, is a student-led organization that performs in concert and at various other functions through the year.

Everyone is invited to attend our concerts on campus, and to attend the Richland Concert Association concert series – students have their membership paid for by UW-Richland. For information about any of our music opportunities, please contact music director Tobin Shucha.


Fall Production: Frankenstein

Poster for Frankenstein

Associate Lecturer Andrew Sharp is directing theater production course CTA-131 this academic year and has announced that the show will be a version of the classic story of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.  Parts will include Dr. Frankenstein, the Monster, Igor, the doctor's fiancé Elizabeth, and townspeople, servants, gypsies and perhaps the Bride of Frankenstein.   Come help the creature be born in an electric display!  The ten-week class can be taken for 1, 2 or 3 credits.  Contact your advisor to register!

About the theatre

The UW-Richland Theatre is a campus-community theatre sponsored by the UW-Richland Department of Communication and Theatre Arts. Funded by a combination of ticket sales and student fees, UW-Richland Theatre typically produces one play a semester. Because the theatre facility is provided and maintained by the community, the production ensemble--both onstage and offstage--welcomes students and community members. This combination offers students the professional level and capabilities of an educational theatre, as well as enjoyment of the sense of "community." UW-Richland students have the opportunity to gain more experience and get more personal attention than they might receive at a larger campus, and they may work with talented and experienced mentors from the community.
