Theatre Arts


Video created by Waldorf students.

The mission of the Department of Theatre is to prepare our graduates with hands-on experience, a thorough academic foundation, and exploration of the concept of the theatre student as both a being of spirituality and reason for successful careers and fulfilling lives of service through the expression, teaching, producing, and advancing the vocation of theatre not only as an art form, but as a continuation of articulating the human condition.

The Department of Theatre offers majors in Theatre Arts with an emphasis in one of the four elective concentrations (performance, Technical/Design, Playwriting, and Generalist/Scholarship) leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree and Theatre/Speech-Education leading to a Bachelor of Science degree. Also offered are a minor program and concentration within the Humanities and Elementary Education major programs. Courses are open to all students meeting prerequisites and THR 132 Acting I fulfills the college’s core requirement speech designation. The curriculum is grounded by a strong general humanities focus and many courses attempt to connect with the production season.
