Theatre students realize how theatrical activity can entertain, instruct, and interpret human experience and evoke a personal aesthetic experience. The theatre program offers opportunities to experience and appreciate dramatic literature and participate in the creative process through performance and production, cultural context and theatrical history, judgment and criticism, and aesthetics. Students will study and respond to a variety of theatrical experiences that will refine their communicative, collaborative, analytical, interpretive, and problem-solving skills. The theatrical experience emphasizes skill development and provides opportunities that enable students to determine areas of personal interest.
