Theater Program

From our theater to the world stage

The theater program is a strong liberal arts training program designed to provide students with a foundation in the areas of performances, design and technology, and history and literature. In addition, students are required to choose an emphasis in performance, design and technology, or production management to study at an advanced level. Throughout a student's years in the program, there are ample opportunities to apply both academic knowledge and acquired skills to a variety of live production experiences. A senior project in a student's particular area of emphasis serves as a capstone to culminate four years of study. All of this theoretical and hands-on learning takes place in a personal, supportive, collegial environment. We pride ourselves on personal mentorship of each theater student. As a theater major or minor, you ill find tremendous opportunities both on-and-off stage to fulfill your artistic goals and cultivate a lifelong connection to theater.

The Public by Frederico García Lorca translated by Caridad Svich

March 12 and 13 at 7:30pm
Directed by Logan Starnes

In the months before he died, the great Spanish playwright Frederico García Lorca was working on a new series of plays which pushed the boundaries of theatrical representation. Included in this group of extraordinary plays is The Public, a surrealist meditation on love and the disguises we layer upon ourselves to survive the scrutiny of society. This lyrically beautiful play is an unusual, theatrical journey through acceptance of oneself in front of an unforgiving public.
