Theatre

JUST WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO “BE A HUMAN BEING?”

For those whose passion is theatre, their craft is a journey to find the answer to that question. Theatre allows them to explore the full range of human behavior and emotion in a way that few other art forms can.

Is it a journey you want to take?

If so, the students and professors in the theatre program invite you to join them. And when you do, get ready for an experience unlike anything you’ve ever had! Because although the focus of the Theatre program is educational, you’re not going to learn the craft just by sitting in a classroom.


CHECK WHAT’S BEHIND THE SCENES OF OUR PRODUCTIONS AND INSIDE OUR AMAZING FACILITIES

You see, when you join the Ozarks Theatre program, you’ll take an active role in the productions: you’ll design, direct, perform, operate the light or sound board, build sets or create costumes. You’ll be part of a professionally run theatre company, working in one of the best theatre facilities in the state, helping put on anywhere from four to six productions a year.

Over the course of your four years in the program, you’ll be able to specialize in the particular facets of theatre that interest you most, whether it’s acting, directing, or production support. And when you graduate, you’ll be ready to share your own vision of what it means to be a human being.
