WINTER TERM 2019 Performaces

Caltech Theatre Arts (TACIT) presents A Hollow In The Hills


A Hollow in the Hills is a collection of haunting one-act plays written by Penelope Chan based on the short stories of Nathaniel Hawthorne. The pieces blend allegory and magical realism to create a dreamscape world where the audience is immersed in sound and emotion, while an ensemble of multi-talented actors, directed by Barbie Insua and Joshua Zeller, weaves tales of guilt, redemption, despair, and hope through movement, voice, and live sound effects. Don’t miss the debut performances of two of Caltech’s international freshmen (Ali Cataltepe and Olivine Silier).
Performances are January 18th at 9pm, January 19th at 2:30pm and 7:30pm, and January 20th at 2:30pm, in Ramo Auditorium. 
Tickets are $13 general admission, $10 Caltech/JPL IDs, and $5 students (with ID).
You can purchase tickets through Campus Events' website, call them at 626-395-4652
(note that there is an online processing fee), or get them at the door.


AVENUE Q Runs February 22-March 3 2019

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm

Sunday matinees at 2:30 pm


$5 students, $9 staff/faculty/jpl/seniors, $18 general admission

Avenue Q is an coming-of-age parable, satirizing the issues and anxieties associated with entering adulthood. The musical makes great use of puppets, animated by puppeteers alongside human actors.


Theater Arts at Caltech (TACIT) is looking for directors, actors, writers and techs to participate in our program.

Founded in the mid-1980s, Theater Arts at Caltech typically prepares and performs two or three plays each academic year. Members of the Caltech community have the opportunity to learn all aspects of the theatrical craft: acting, stage crew, set construction, wardrobe, light and sound operation, properties, house management, and publicity. This is a hands-on approach, not classroom theory. Learn More
