"We need to restore this very public space with the elegant appointments is so richly deserves."

UVM President Tom Sullivan

Help us make attending a production at the Royall Tyler Theatre a more enjoyable - and far more comfortable - experience.

In honor of the Royall Tyler's 40th anniversary, UVM President Tom Sullivan, Dean Antonio Cepeda-Benito of the College of Arts and Sciences and two private donors have already committed $145,000 in seed money toward replacing the well-worn seats, carpets and other furnishings in the theatre.

To make this happen we must raise another $70,000 by Dec. 31. For $500, a donor can have a seat named in their honor or in memory of a loved one. Whether your gift is $50 or $500, every contribution will help make our beloved campus theatre sparkle more brightly in coming years.

Thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing you in the theatre!

      Next up on the Royall Tyler stage will be William Shakespeare’s spirited comedy Much Ado About Nothing. The quick-witted and quarrelsome lovers Beatrice and Benedick spar irresistibly in a hilarious skirmish of wits around the intricate game that is love. Passionate, sexy and funny Much Ado About Nothing will make you laugh, break your heart – then magically put it back together again. Join director Mark Alan Gordon and a talented cast of UVM students as they bring the bard’s timeless tale to life. Much Ado About Nothing will resonate with anyone who has been in love!

Much Ado About Nothing runs February 18 - 22.
