Theatre, Dance and Performance Technology


Through a large, diverse body of work, the Theatre Program provides a solid academic foundation plus the experience of working in a wide range of theatre productions, including mainstage productions in the Boll Theatre and experimental work in the Black Box Theatre, located on the first floor of Raymond L. Fitz Hall. Our majors are required to audition for roles and participate in each mainstage production for academic credit.
