The Theatre and Dance Department provides students with well-balanced programs of study, integrating practical production work with classes that examine the principles, theoretical aspects, and historical development of theatre and dance. Throughout the year, the Department produces three main-stage theatre productions; committed to fostering artistic excellence; presenting to students, faculty, staff, and audience a laboratory for investigation and experimentation; providing opportunity and support for creative expression, intellectual development, and aesthetic appreciation. Additionally, an annual dance concert is presented under the auspices of the Orchesis Dance Company, and every spring a student-directed dance concert is also produced.
