What Sets Us Apart?
Our five mainstage – theatre and dance – productions run parallel to the academic year and provide performance opportunities for all university students. Ranging from new work to classical drama, our productions are produced with a contemporary, relevant lens that resonates with audiences both locally and nationally. Our faculty and students create new, adventurous performances that challenge, engage, and enlighten performers and audiences alike. We elevate voices of our diverse student body through productions that reflect a multiplicity of communities, identities, and perspectives.
Our Faculty and Personal Instruction:
Our faculty has years of professional experience in theatre, film, and television. Students are connected with industry professionals through guest speakers, workshops, and internships. We keep our class sizes small to ensure that each student is a familiar face who receives individual attention in the classroom, rehearsal, design meetings, and advising setting.
Our Performance Opportunities:
SU Theatre creates live experiences that push beyond the preconceived limitations of theatre. Whether interested in performing, designing, or managing, our program provides students with comprehensive production opportunities. Students leave our program with portfolios full of work, evidenced by the success of our students and alumni in grad school acceptances and awards.
