We are a vibrant and close-knit department with a strong curriculum and production program.
We offer an academic program of recognized excellence which develops students as practicing theatre artists and engaged audience members.
Both theatre majors and non-majors participate in all aspects of our work. An outstanding faculty, an excellent facility, and strong interdivisional collaboration with the art, dance and music departments contribute to our program. We offer exciting internship opportunities in New York City, Chicago and Philadelphia as well as with the professional Hope Summer Repertory Theatre — all of these which further mark our department as a special liberal arts program in theatre.
In addition to our academic focus, we offer opportunities for students to be involved
in the production of four mainstage plays per year, plus numerous other opportunities
in acting, directing, design and stage management through student independent projects,
directing classes and Theatre Forum, a student-run theatre organization.
