Participation in Theatre, Speech, and Dance classes and productions is open to all students. As a performer, designer, member of a shop or running crew -- students from every major on campus are involved with productions alongside students who are majoring and minoring in Theatre or Dance.
Freshmen and transfer students are welcome to work on all productions. The Department's Blackboard Production Site provides ongoing access to production information.
Become a member of our audience: No show is complete until we share it with an audience! Audience and performers make a real-time, in-person, and unique connection during each performance. Students receive discounted tickets to each production. For more information, contact the Box Office, [[boxoffice]]. Please note: Theatre Majors, Theatre, Minors, and Dance Minors receive one (1) comp ticket for personal use to each mainstage show.
