In the Theatre Arts department, our faculty and students impart a sense of community in a supportive and creative environment. Care to join us? We’re always welcoming new members. Every student, regardless of major, can audition for a play, assist in front of house or backstage roles, work in a shop, or take a class with us.


​There is a lot for our majors and “friends of the theatre” to keep organized, and here we’ll help you do just that. Whether you are a major wanting to know what’s next, a non-major working on crew for one of our shows, or a student looking for your next opportunity, this is the material you will need to succeed.
