Youngstown State University Theater’s 50th anniversary season will begin next month, and will include an original drama, a commemorative musical, a holiday cabaret, a Shakespeare reprisal, two one-act plays, the annual Dance Ensemble concert and a double-bill opera.

The world premiere of the play, “Tribunal,” by local playwright Mark Milo Kessler, will open the season Oct. 18. Both Spotlight Theater and Ford Theater are inside Bliss Hall, on Wick Avenue.
