DEPARTMENT OF THEATRE

An Artistic home where you'll expand your perspective

When you take classes in the Department of Theatre, you become part of a close-knit community engaged in every aspect of theater.

DU theater majors do it all: write, design, build, act, direct, manage and produce. Our hands-on approach gives students a broad perspective—one that will help them develop creative problem-solving skills to take with them into their careers.

Engaged faculty

We credit the success of our program largely to our highly engaged faculty members. When not teaching or in production here on campus, many collaborate with a variety of local, regional and national theater companies.

A hands-on experience

There are many ways to learn theater at DU—in class, in rehearsal, on stage and backstage. Our students are the heart of the program, providing the actors, technicians and publicity for each production.

Intensive study

Students begin by developing a solid foundation in all the aspects of theater, and can focus on one area of emphasis in their third or fourth year—anything from performance to design management to directing.

April - May, 2014
