The Theatre program offers many opportunities for students to work on-stage, backstage and front-of-house through classes, independent studies, internships, and practicum work and on full-length major productions, one-acts, original plays and staged readings.
Students can also join an active Drama Society. Students perform regularly in the black-box Harry Hope Theatre, which houses digital lighting, projections, surround sound, and flexible seating. Performances in other sites throughout the campus and on tour are offered as well. Starting in Fall 2016, classes and performances will take place in the new Fine Arts Instructional Center!
Touring opportunities include Children’s Theatre and Reader’s Theatre in schools throughout CT; the NYC Showcase of Student Talent in New York City; the Los Angeles Spring Break Program; and the month-long Summer in London program. Guest artist residencies are also built into the theatre program each semester.
