If you think all the world’s a stage, the theatre arts department at Furman University will help you expand the depth and breadth of your creative process. Under the guidance of our outstanding faculty, you’ll combine a strong liberal arts foundation with a comprehensive understanding of the theatre experience. That means you won’t just study acting, design or technical production. You’ll study it all. Because at Furman, we’re not just preparing you for opening night. We’re preparing you for every stage that awaits you in life.
By providing extensive onstage and offstage training, our ambitious program develops well-rounded artists who are prepared for any role.
If you're ready for the spotlight or interested in working behind the curtain, you won't find a shortage of opportunities.
We offer four main stage performances each year along with a variety of small productions and student-directed shows.
Our faculty have performed and worked in theatres, costume shops, and set design studios across the United States.
Even when we're not working on a play or project, you'll find students mingling in our facilities, gathering in our scene shop for one of our grand traditions: our morning game of darts. Something is always happening here.
