Description provided by the program

Our liberal arts Drama program emphasizes an experimental, yet well-rounded approach. Design, technology, directing, acting, history and theory students (majors and non-majors) all work together (with faculty and staff) in theatre-making. On average we produce 4 faculty/guest directed productions and 5 student/ensemble-driven productions each year. We also provide opportunities for hands-on research and basic conservation of our museum quality historic costume collection.
