CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE

 Influencing the world for Christ through the arts is a dynamic way to connect with people from all walks of life. Theatre can touch hearts, evoke deep thinking, and can be an avenue to proclaim the gospel in any part of the world. The theatre major places you in shoulder-rubbing range with experienced actors, directors, and distinguished faculty. You will learn through hands-on classes, workshops, and professional coaching. Two stage productions each year give you the opportunity to hone your acting skills and build your résumé. You’ll experience a wide variety of genres including comedy, drama, musicals, classics, and contemporary works.
