Theatre students picture collage

Theatre is a four year program offering two streams of study, Performance and Design/Production, and features  

  • Small class sizes
  • Skilled instructors with professional theatre experience
  • High academic standards

We believe that the theatre artist carries a major responsibility to serve not only the arts but also the community at large. Theatre is not just about acting but it is a collaboration that relies on the talents of designers, lighting and sound technicians, carpenters, painters, media and box office administrators. We believe that theatre artists must be sensitive to all of the areas that constitute the theatre experience: the more things you can do with knowledge and flair, the more useful you will be in future endeavors, to the theatre, to yourself and to your community.
