UNCW Theatre Terry Rogers Student Lab/Scholarship Production The Cake

Della makes cakes, not judgment calls – those she leaves to her husband, Tim. But when the girl she helped raise comes back home to North Carolina to get married to another woman, Della’s life gets turned upside down. She can’t really make a cake for such a wedding, can she? For the first time in her life, Della has to think for herself.

Directed, designed, produced and performed by UNCW Theatre students the Terry Rogers Student Lab/Scholarship production is a great learning experience for our students. Led by faculty mentors, students have the opportunity to present their own production. The guiding principle of this production is to create theatre that is creatively rich in a low-tech environment.

The Cake will run at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday with Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. Performances will take place March 21-24 in the SRO Theatre in the UNCW Cultural Arts Building. Tickets are $10 for members of the general public and $3 for students (sales tax included.) Tickets can be purchased in advance at: They are also available at the door one hour before the show on show dates.
