Southern Miss Theatre is delighted to announce that it will become a broadcast venue for Britain’s illustrious National Theatre! Beginning in October 2013 with ‘Othello’, starring Adrian Lester and Rory Kinnear, the Department of Theatre will broadcast live recordings of London performances at USM’s Tatum Theatre. 


Performances in London are ‘live captured’ with the finest High Definition technology and then subsequently broadcast to venues the world over, allowing for world class productions, acclaimed actors, and groundbreaking companies to be seen here in southern Mississippi.  


Southern Miss Theatre is proud to introduce world class theatre to Hattiesburg and the surrounding region, and we hope that you will join us for this exciting endeavor!  The broadcasts are made possible through generous private donations and with additional financial support provided by the Dean’s Office of the College of Arts and Letters.
