Theatre is a hands-on art form and there is no better place to get your “hands on” than RU Theatre. Besides the classroom there are many ways to engage your theatre studies, in fact, your whole college experience. Other learning opportunities are available through independent study, internships in theatre or any number of other areas and study abroad. For additional practical experience and even some extra money you might look into one of the many work study positions available in the department.

Our students are encouraged to participate in professional organizations such as Virginia Theatre Association, Southeastern Theatre Conference and United States Institute for Theatre Technology.  A prime way to delve into these is by attending their annual conferences. Back here on campus you might check out the Improv Club or USITT-Student Chapter and the rest of the great special interest organizations readily accessible through RU Involved. RU, Theatre, RU Theatre…experience it all!
