The Willamette University’s theater department has canceled its two productions this semester.

Theater department faculty officially announced to the community on Feb. 9 the cancellations of “Servant of Two Masters,” which was supposed to open on Feb. 22, and “Public Enemy,” which had been scheduled for later in the semester.

Kristen Grainger, chief communications officer at Willamette University, said the shows were canceled due to an internal conflict within the department.
