Here, students learn to navigate the actor, the text, and the theatrical space, and to approach theatre and the world with curiosity, empathy, and creativity.
Theatre at Centre prepares students to engage with all the elements of theatre as an art form.
The Theatre faculty and staff are a community of artists and scholars dedicated to using theatre as our primary tool. A student can major or minor in Theatre, or can add Theatre as a second major. Students can gain skills that will equip you for a life in the theatre or a career in any number of fields. In addition, students of any major are invited to take any of our classes and participate in all of our productions.
Communication skills, team-building skills, adaptive technology and media skills are all vital to success in today’s work force. So whether you want to be an actor or a banker, a playwright or a lawyer, a designer or a manager, Theatre at Centre can help you prepare!
