alltheworldThe Department of Theatre and Dance is dedicated to a broad-based study of the history, theory, and practice of theatre and dance in the context of a liberal arts education that is integrally connected to a rigorous production program centering on student involvement and leadership. This interaction of the academic and the practical generates an ongoing symbiosis, with each focus actively informing and inspiring the other. Along with growing more knowledgeable and skilled as artists and scholars, our students also develop as critical thinkers and responsible collaborators.
