The College's theater program emphasizes acting and directing, but it will also encourage you to work in all elements of theater - acting, directing, design, technical theater, playwriting, dramaturgy and dramatic literature - so that you understand the process of creating theater from initial idea to final performance.
We believe that the best theater arises from collaborations based on mutual respect, and that the power of a creative ensemble is greater than the sum of its parts.
We seek to balance the experiential development of a student in the studio and on the stage with his or her intellectual development in the classroom; in this way we provide each student with multiple opportunities to explore his or her individual creative abilities.
We believe that a broad liberal arts education in theater produces graduates who are adaptable and self-directed. This education serves as a foundation for future development as thinking artists and productive citizens.
