About Theatre & Dance
The School of Theatre and Dance produces three seasons of plays annually. We have a mostly faculty-directed four play Mainstage Season, a five-show Lab season that uses students and faculty to direct and design, and a summer performance lab in which students develop plays and devise works.
The teaching staff of the department consists of twenty-two faculty in all areas of theatre, around 40 teaching assistants who teach, direct, administrate, and facilitate, and nine professional staff members. Enrollment within the department vacillates, but we generally have around 130 undergraduate BA and BFA majors and 60 graduate students in our MA, MFA, and PHD programs.
The School of Theatre and Dance is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre (NAST) and the National Association of Schools of Dance (NASD).
