Acadia University’s Theatre program gives you a strong grounding in theatre, as well as professional preparation from faculty members. There are two main streams of study within the program – performance and production.
The performance stream offers you a solid foundation in acting, movement, voice, theatre history, and dramatic literature, and includes the opportunity to perform or to work backstage in the productions of the Acadia Theatre Company. The production stream is a multi-disciplinary program that allows you to focus your studies on the backstage elements of theatre instead of on performance.
The Acadia Theatre Company produces two shows a year from the modern, classic and international repertoire. In addition, the company stages a Minifest of original one act plays each year. These are directed, performed, stage-managed, designed, lighted, and costumed by Acadia theatre students under the supervision of theatre faculty.
