The Theatre Program is a part of the Department of Fine Arts. We encourage creative thinking and the development of the multiple crafts of theatre through experiences explored in rehearsal, performance and the classroom. We strive to provide you with:

  • Comprehensive programs in theatre to include all performance, design and technical elements
  • Exposure to a wide variety of performance styles and historical periods
  • Opportunities to improve self-discipline in preparation for a deadline-driven, production-oriented career
  • A supportive environment in which you will be encouraged to try new things and learn from your failures.
