Enter an exploration into the exciting world of the theatre!
Our major will provide you with the nuts and bolts needed to be successful in your future – be it on to graduate school, into the educational setting of teaching theatre, or out into the big world of theatre production! Courses will ground you in the areas of acting, directing and design – all tools you will need to make it after you leave our campus.
What about the shows?
We have production opportunities for you to get hands-on experience in the craft! In addition to one major production each semester, we also give students a chance to produce and tour with a summer production as part of our Summer Musical Theatre Touring Program, and we pay for you to do it! In addition, the department is host to the National Players annual professional touring company each spring, as well as holding an annual oral interpretation and regional one act play contest.
Money! We offer competitive talent scholarships to both majors and non-majors. Our theatre companies are made up of lots of folks like you who want to make theatre!
Our home is Marian Auditorium, a 765-seat proscenium theatre complete with a new counterweight fly system and computerized lighting operation capabilities.
