Whether explicitly or implicitly, artists use their medium to express personal experience, tell stories, and to contemplate where we have been, where we are now, and where we are going. WUDT’s NEXT, this year’s installment of the Performing Arts Department’s annual fall dance concert poses the question to its artists, “what’s next?”– in dance, in art, in society and culture. 

This annual concert dance showcase features diverse and creative choreography by resident and guest artists, performed by select student dancers of the Performing Arts Department.

Edison Theatre

Located in Mallinckrodt Center

Edison Theatre is the only fully technically equipped, proscenium thrust theater at Washington University in St. Louis and plays a varied role on campus.

Edison serves as a teaching facility for the Washington University Performing Arts Department, which produces three mainstage Edison shows each year and serves as a performance venue for Washington University student organizations.

Edison is also one of the few theaters in the St. Louis area to serve as a rental house for locally based presenting arts organizations such as The Black Rep.

At its capacity, Edison Theatre seats 656.

Officially named Samuel B. & Charles B. Edison Theatre, but known affectionately as “the Edison,” the theater’s construction was made possible through a generous donation from Mrs. Samuel B. Edison in 1972 and is named after her late husband and son
