About

By providing extensive onstage and offstage training, the Theatre Arts program offered by Furman University develops well-rounded artists who are prepared for any role. 

Overview

We produce four Main Stage performances each year, as well as a number of smaller student-produced experiences to which the entire campus and Greenville community are invited. The Theatre Arts program at Furman University ranges from modern to classical, comedy to tragedy, musical to non-musical. Our students collaborate with faculty and get involved in every aspect of the production, from costumes to set design, management to promotion, lighting to sound.
