Why Choose Theatre?

Our program enables you to experience every aspect of theatre – costume, set, sound, lighting design; stage management, marketing, acting, and directing. Small classes mean we can give you the individual attention that will prepare you for a wide range of careers or further study. Our unique Term III offers the opportunity to experience the "real world," fast-paced environment of theatre production. This intensive collaboration between faculty and students provides an unforgettable immersion in theatre.
