Theatre Performance Major

Theatre expresses a basic human instinct, bringing people together, and influencing how we think and feel about our own lives. When you choose a Theatre Performance Major you will be provided with a balanced program emphasizing artistic perception and creative expression. We will delve into aesthetic valuing, historical and cultural awareness, and the interconnections of the arts with other disciplines. You will be trained in the fundamental skills of acting, including improvisation, body control, voice/diction, pantomime, characterization, and scene study format. Actors will be provided with opportunities to perform in our Gala, theatre productions and musicals, as well as additional venues throughout our community. We value professional training and instill qualities that highlight the success of each student in the real world.
