The Theatre Studies Concentration is a newly established program designed to foster multi-disciplinary theatre artists. This program puts an emphasis on academic excellence within the liberal arts model as well as gaining practical knowledge and experience. Theatre Studies is the quintessential concentration area for the self-directed student interested in further study in graduate school or a career in the professional field.

The Theatre Studies program is for you if:

  • You love the theatre and want to have a broad base of knowledge about every aspect of it.
  • You might want to run your own theatre company someday.
  • You are interested in becoming a playwright, dramaturg or director.
  • You plan on attending Graduate School.
  • You’d like to write about theatre as a critic or scholar.
  • You are interested in interdisciplinary research and performance.

The Theatre Study program offers a wide variety of theatre classes that encompass all discipline areas. Classes as diverse as acting, stagecraft, playscript analysis, directing, stage management, playwriting, dramaturgy and theatre management comprise the required concentration credits.  In addition the Theatre Studies program offers elective concentration credits, allowing scholars to indulge specific interests and areas of study.  The Theatre Studies program is interested in fostering well-rounded theatre practitioners, scholars and teachers and so encourages students to explore classes and activities outside the School of Theatre Arts and Dance.

Theatre Studies students are encouraged but not required to audition for Little Theatre of the Rockies, One Acts, and other productions at the School of Theatre Arts and Dance. They are also offered the opportunity to perform Dramaturgical work on School productions.

Admission Requirements:
Students interested in the Theatre Studies program must submit a 300 word essay that describes their passion for the Art and Craft of Theatre and their long term career goals. Once in the program, Theatre Studies students will be expected to maintain a 3.0 GPA.
