Presenting SCUPresents

With the inaugural season of SCUPresents at Santa Clara University starting this fall, performing arts patrons will be able to enjoy the talents of both academic and professional artists.

“The goal of SCUPresents is to not only create art in an academic setting to be used to educate, engage, and entertain our students and community, but to also present world-class artists,” explains Butch Coyne, director of the SCU Center of Performing Arts.

FF-groucho-4_lgAward-winning actor/director/playwright Frank Ferrante takes the stage in Mayer Theatre on October 15, recreating the comedy of Groucho Marx in “An Evening with Groucho.”

On November 4-12, it’s the students’ turn for the Mayer Theatre as they perform the doo-wop musical “Little Shop of Horrors.”
