Mission Statement

The mission of the Theatre program is to provide a nurturing and challenging artistic environment that celebrates our history and anticipates our future and to enhance the cultural and aesthetic experience of our campus and community through quality productions and educational outreach.

The Theatre program will provide:

  • Basic knowledge of the main components of the theatrer arts, and
  • Appreciation of the historical and present impact of theater on human civilization.

Students seeking a Theatre minor will:

  • Analyze and create solutions to specific challenges of the theater production process;
  • Critically analyze dramatic works;
  • Apply the knowledge and skills gained in the classroom directly to rehearsal and performance; and
  • Understand theater as a vitally important force for communication and understanding in an increasingly multi-cultural world.
