Overview

Our beautiful theatre, the Givens Performing Arts Center was recently ranked among the 25 most amazing performing arts centers in the nation. Our Showcase Studio Theatre is a wonderfully intimate “black box” space, designed specifically for students to create their own projects. We are very excited by our new initiative called “SHOWCASE.” We have created a space where students can act, direct, and design their own shows with their own budgets, funded and mentored by the Theatre Arts Department.

This is in addition to our fully produced main stage season of plays, dance concerts, and musicals on the Givens Performing Arts Center stage.

We are a student-centric program and we concentrate on making our students happy, while challenging them to grow into vital working professionals. Many of our students have gone on to professional careers in all aspects of theatre. The Theatre Art mission is to graduate artists who are prepared for the rigorous, but wonderfully rewarding, life in the theatre!

Vision 

The University of North Carolina at Pembroke will challenge students to embrace difference and adapt to change, think critically, communicate effectively, and become responsible citizens. Working from a strong foundation in the liberal arts, we will increase opportunities to infuse our curriculum with interdisciplinary innovation while promoting undergraduate and graduate research as well as international opportunities.
