About the Department

In our department, every story matters. Whether musicals, contemporary plays, or classics are your thing, OUR thing is to represent the people who call our theater home. Our program is built to reflect our student body: diverse, energetic, and inclusive of all people.

Be a part of the action from Day 1. With the W Theatre, opportunities to collaborate onstage and backstage begin in your first season with us. Our 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio ensures that you get the hands-on experience and personal mentoring you need to join the industry after graduation. Collaborations with our Music Department and Communications Department create a variety of experiences for our students to develop their musical theatre and film skills.

Make yourself at home in one of our amazing theatre spaces. Whether the 300-seat Cromwell Black Box is your speed or you get excited about our Make-Up studio, we've got space for you to flex your creative muscles.
