The Theatre Program encourages creative thinking and the development of the multiple crafts of theatre through experiences in design, rehearsal, and performance. We strive to provide you with:

  • 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.

Unlike most Theatre programs, Tarleton gives all theatre majors the opportunity to begin their professional training during their first semester. This includes opportunities in:

  • Acting
  • Design
  • Directing
  • Musical Theatre
  • Stage Management
  • Technical Production
  • Publicity, etc.
