Join Swine Palace as we celebrate 25 years of theatre in the Baton Rouge community!  This season, we take a look at the magic of theatre and storytelling and how it is a vital part of creating our culture.  Below, read a little about each of the productions – take note that this season we are offering two of our shows in rotating repertory, a rare opportunity here in Baton Rouge.  Season subscriptions are on sale here.  We look forward to seeing you at the theatre!

25th Anniversary Season



By Michael Frayn

Directed by Vastine Stabler

Shaver Theatre

September 21 – October 2, 2016

  • NOISES OFF, by Michael Frayn is a hilarious depiction of what goes on (and what goes wrong) backstage in the theatre. Come prepared to laugh at the uproarious antics of the cast and crew of NOTHING ON as they fumble their way through their stories happening onstage and off!


THE SEAGULL by Anton Chekhov

Directed by Gavin Cameron-Webb

In rotating repertory with

STUPID F***ING BIRD by Aaron Posner

Directed by Risa Brainin

Reilly Theatre

March 22 – April 7, 2017

  • Swine Palace is excited to present THE SEAGULL and STUPID F$%#ING BIRD in rotating repertory!  THE SEAGULL is the classic Chekhov story about love and art in late 19th century Russia.  In Aaron Posner’s adaptation, STUPID F%#$ING BIRD the story gets a hilarious and contemporary “retelling.”


LSU Mainstage Season:


By Anne Washburn

Directed by Steven Young

Reilly Theatre

November 9 – 20, 2016


  • MR BURNS, A POST ELECTRIC PLAY by Anne Washburn is a dark comedy exploring the creation of the myths and legends that are valued by our culture. Imagine an entire series of stories based on The Simpsons!



By Caryl Churchill

Director TBA

Shaver Theatre

February 8 – 19, 2017

  • LOVE AND INFORMATION is a fast moving kaleidoscope where more than a hundred characters try to make sense of what they know. This play by award-winning playwright Caryl Churchill takes a close look at the Information Age and how stories told through its data inspired obsessions, FaceTime conversations, and celebrity selfies threaten to replace human contact.
