Welcome from the Chair

Richard Dunham, Chair

Our students, patrons and faculty have one thing in common - a passion for the arts! Our faculty represent professional theatre and cinema artists who offer a variety of experiences that provide our students with tools and training that will help prepare them for further studies in graduate school or to enter the entertainment industry. Whether onstage or backstage, students receive opportunities to not only participate in our productions but to take on leadership roles as designers and directors once completing the appropriate courses. Opportunities exist to further your exposure to theatre whether you’re a major, minor, or simply have an ongoing interest in theatre. We invite you to explore our classes, production opportunities, guest artist programs, scholarships and stimulating and thought-provoking season productions. Everyone can play a part in the powerful, insightful world of theatre and cinema—even if only from the perspective of becoming an informed audience member. Join us to find your role and passion for the performing arts.
