University Players is the theatrical production arm of the School of Dramatic Art at the University of Windsor. Home to some of the nation's leading theatre programs, housed in a state-of-the-art training facility, the School of Dramatic Art has been producing top-notch talent for over 40 years.

Our shows are created by an ensemble that includes talented up-and-coming student actors, directors from the faculty and guest artists, and our skilled and innovative set, costume, and lighting designers. Students are involved in all aspects of production, on-stage and off, as they prepare for careers in the professional theatres of Canada and abroad.
