About the Department

The Theatre major curriculum provides an introduction to all aspects of theatre:

  • the literature of the drama
  • theatre history
  • acting
  • directing
  • design
  • management

The major blends the curricular program with the co-curricular Theatre Laboratory labor program, the capstone Senior Theatre Project, and instruction from theatre faculty and guest artists.

The Theatre Laboratory is the play production organization that supports a full season of plays each academic year, as well as individual student projects and original work.
