The ETBU Department of Theatre Arts is an active, professionally-geared program that seeks to provide opportunities that inspire, encourage, and challenge students to grow intellectually, artistically, and spiritually. Our production seasons are designed to offer students experience in varying literary genres, acting styles, and theatrical venues. Students are given multiple opportunities to participate as performers, designers, and/or technicians in our main stage productions and as directors in our student-led Discovery Series productions. Additionally, our classes challenge students to acquire, develop and master new skills; expand upon and draw connections across specific disciplines and history; and deepen their appreciation for the work that goes on behind the scenes as they prepare to enter the professional world and/or graduate school programs. Your interest in our department is warmly welcomed, whether as an artist, technician, or audience member.
