The theatre major 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 production. 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.

Program Overview


  • 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 ensures that each student will actively grow in competency as they master different methods of 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.
