The Theater Arts Department focuses on a liberal arts education in theater arts. Students are given a deep grounding the theater history, literature and theory and gain experience both in theoretical knowledge and practice. With an emphasis on physical and vocal skills as well as acting and directing, playwriting, stage management and design, students can be more confident when they are involved as actors, dancers, writers, directors, or designers. Because the major involves learning about and practicing classical techniques, theory, and experimental methods of devising and creating original theater pieces they are equipped with tools working on productions and projects that are centered around themes of social justice, classical and experimental theater, and working collaboratively as well rounded theater artists. The goal of our program is to prepare students to articulate and demonstrate a solid vision as young theater artists and the tools to begin their artistic work, whether their future lies in professional theater, graduate study in theater arts, or elsewhere. Learning Goals Theater Arts is the interdisciplinary study of humanity, focusing on what it takes to be part of the process of performing and making a play on stage. The Department of Theater Arts offers courses in four areas that are key to a well-rounded theater experience - Acting/Performance, Design, Production, and Dramatic Literature and History. Our students are given an opportunity to participate in the art of theater in all its parts. For example, students may act, direct, sing, dance, design, manage, build, and provide crew support on our productions as part of their major study. With a solid grounding in fundamental theater practices and exploration of cutting edge techniques, students begin their journey to find their unique voice.
