About Yale Undergraduate Production
Undergraduate Production (UP) was established in 2000 to ensure safe practices in the planning, production, and presentation of undergraduate performing arts events. Over the subsequent years, Yale College’s performing arts culture has grown to encompass over 400 events, 2,500 students, and 30,000 audience experiences annually.
Yale University has a vast and vibrant performing arts culture. Within this rich environment, UP works exclusively with Yale undergraduates to ensure that their work gets the attention and support it needs. UP provides training and technical support for comedy, dance, music, opera, spoken word, theater, and interdisciplinary performance genres. We work on everything from large-scale projects, such as operas featuring dozens of cast members and musicians, to informal poetry slams.
Regardless of scope and scale, all student productions must be planned and developed in a manner that ensures the safety of the production team and the audience. UP exists to fulfill this mandate as we support both the artistic vision and the highest level of safety for each undergraduate production.
