2019-20 Season

Baylor Theatre has cancelled all performances and public events through the summer to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

While we at Baylor Theatre feel a deep and profound sense of loss over fully-realized design projects that will not be completed and performances that will not be seen, keeping you -- our audience -- and our students, faculty, and staff safe is our priority.

Thank you for your patience, grace, and understanding during this unusual time. Stay tuned for more information as we make plans for next season.

Jean and Berenger meet for a chat in a quaint café, when the beautiful Ms. Daisy enters, upsetting bashful Berenger’s nerves. Suddenly the streets begin to rumble! Why are people running? What’s that trumpeting sound? Is that really a pachyderm? As rhinoceroses race through town, the citizens have their friendships, loyalties, and identities tested.
