The theatre program at Anderson University is a place where you can develop your acting and directing skills while also learning about the historical and technical aspects of theatre productions. Performance opportunities each year include two main stage productions, two lyric theatre productions, and two black box productions. In addition to working with our own faculty, students work with a variety of guest artists and guest directors to develop their artistry and enhance their professional skills and connections.
Why choose AU for theatre?
- Optimal size for expanded opportunities. The smaller theatre program at AU translates to small class sizes and multiple performance and backstage opportunities, giving graduates marketability in all areas of the theatre.
- Classes build upon elements from previous classes. This process assures each graduate a level of competency having mastered a method for their craft.
- Working with professionals. In addition to instruction by faculty in AU’s theatre program, students work with seasoned industry professionals in Indianapolis and central Indiana.
