Find your light. Develop your character.

University of Dayton’s Theatre, Dance, and Performance Technology Program provides a liberal arts tradition, creating performance with purpose through interdisciplinary discovery. We engage talent in the service of community, leading through the arts to problem-solve. 

The theatre is where we discover who we are, affirm our values, aspire to be better, and seek solutions. It's where we play "what if?" in the face of "who cares?" It's where we engage in collaborative, creative inquiry that reminds us what it is to be human, to be flawed, to be transformed. The theatre is the site of embodied democracy, where entertainment entertains emergent ideas - because we all have stories to tell.

The University's program provides four theoretical and practical concentrations: acting, performance, technology, dance, and applied theatre - all informed by a Marianist tradition of community engagement and social justice. With co-curricular, interdisciplinary, and experiential learning at the heart of the curriculum, performers and technicians learn by doing, serving and creating. They develop their character, find their light and lead.
