Department Chair: Dennis Elkins

Professor: Ginny Davis
Lecturer: Felicia Meyer

The Theatre major enables students to explore their potential as productive, literate, articulate, and humane members of society through a close study of the theory and practice of theatre. Our students are trained to bring highly developed communication skills, flexibility, and creativity to a wide range of career opportunities in performance and the entertainment industry as well as in the preparation for graduate school programs in theatre.

The theatre major is available in five options: Arts Administration , Design and Technical Theatre , Performance and Directing , Secondary Drama Teaching  and the Theatre Generalist . Each of the above options combines the practical and theoretical training in theatre with the various disciplines associated with performance including such areas as art, media, music, psychology, and technology. The experience and knowledge attained within the theatre major is applicable to working in a variety of performance and fine art venues such as professional theatres, community theatres, music venues, dance venues, and nonprofit arts organizations.

The academic program in the Department of Theatre includes experiential classroom learning and intensive and exciting guest artist engagements. The curriculum is further supported by an innovative and broad production schedule, which is the cornerstone of the department, and a wide variety of internship opportunities. Performing, research, technical theatre, administrative opportunities, and a wide variety of internship opportunities are open to all students. Participation in productions is considered an academic endeavor garnering course credit. Auditions and technical theatre interviews are held at the beginning of each term.

Students choosing the Secondary Drama Teaching option, who wish to become Colorado licensed grades 7-12 theatre teachers, should consult a Theatre Department advisor as early as possible in their academic career, and should read the Teacher Education Licensure Program  section of this catalog for the steps and requirements for applying to and the requirements for completing the program.
