A Christmas Carol

This Dickens classic is a beloved NWU Christmas tradition. Come see Scrooge, the ghosts, snowflakes and carolers in all their glory.

Death of a Salesman

“For a salesman, there is no rock bottom to life. He don’t put a bolt to a nut, he don’t tell you the law or give you medicine. He’s a man way out there in the blue, riding on a smile and a shoeshine.” What better place to see Arthur Miller’s Pulitzer Prize winning drama than Miller Theatre?

Peter and the Starcatcher

This Peter Pan prequel is perfect for families. The Tony-winning play upends the century-old story of how an orphan becomes The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up.

She Kills Monsters
