Mission Statement

The two-fold mission of the Theatre Department is to provide a foundation for the artistic and intellectual growth of our students and to offer a cultural opportunity to the community through public performance. Theatre is a multi-art form, consisting of performance, design, technology, art, music dance, and literature. Therefore, the education of Theatre students requires a comprehensive program of practical application of techniques and theory, plus personal awareness, in order to prepare students for productive participation in an increasingly diverse and multi-cultural world. The performance offered to the public should provide a varied season of productions to build an appreciation of the theatrical event as well as an increased sense of the value of the arts in our society.
