The Department of Theatre and Dance is committed to equity and representation that reflects the student population, builds community, teaches compassion, and condemns intolerance.  We are committed to advancing social justice by providing equal opportunity for all students without biases toward race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, economic status, or political beliefs.  As artists, educators and scholars, we strive to achieve a creative collaboration in our classrooms, rehearsal, and performance spaces with a focus and dedication to equitable representation while actively embracing traditionally under-represented groups and their contributions to the canon.

We embrace the potential for theatre and dance to create community and change world views. We seek:

  • to cultivate a stimulating, diverse and creative environment in which students deepen their aesthetic experience, while strengthening a broad range of theatre and dance skills,
  • to preserve the traditions of dramatic literature, while encouraging experimentation in new theatrical forms, ideas and insights,
  • to make a significant cultural impact on the campus and throughout the region served by the university,
  • to deliver a curriculum that emphasizes the role of theatre and dance as a catalyst for artistic expression and a means for developing a global perspective,

The Department of Theatre and Dance provides classroom instruction and hands-on participation in the performance and production aspects of theatre, dance, and film. Recent productions include: Opening Door Dance Theatre, Merge Dance Company, Cabaret, Intimate Apparel, Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play, Men on Boats, Little Women: The Musical, The Tempest, References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot, How I Learned to Drive, and Measure for Measure. 

Our programs prepare professional actors, designers, writers, producers, directors, technicians, performers, choreographers, as well as, teachers for the public schools. Students work closely with professional artist-educators who have earned national and international recognition. Our faculty have performed on Broadway, starred in television shows, danced in professional companies, worked at Tony-Award winning regional theatres, choreographed for dance productions and musicals, had designs displayed internationally, published books and articles, and had their plays produced in New York and abroad. We are large enough to provide access to a full complement of highly qualified specialists, while still small enough to offer personal attention to our students.  Specializations include acting, technical production, performance and production, performance and choreography, musical theatre, film production, and teacher certification. Our graduates work as teachers, dancers, actors, choreographers, designers, writers, producers, directors, and technicians throughout the industry.

Facilities

Classes take place in the university's distinctive Theatre Center, Jowers Center, and new Performing Arts Center. Combined with the performance space in Evans Auditorium, these spaces contain five theatres that provide students the opportunity to experience a variety of production styles. They house completely equipped scenic, prop, paint, and costume shops, rehearsal rooms, a computer drafting lab, classrooms, and resources for both research and teaching.
