Through critical research of the literature, history and theory of drama, and by developing practical skills in performance and production, working collaboratively and honing individual artistic passions, Theatre majors train to become self-sufficient actors, directors, playwrights, administrators, or theatrical technicians.
The Theatre program at Bellarmine University encourages students to cultivate critical thinking and develop their individual artistic passion through immersion in literature, new worldviews, cultural diversity, exposure to a wide variety of performance practices and their own practical creative exploration.
Over your next four years at Bellarmine, the BU Theatre will produce classic works, international plays, a musical or two, works by and inspired by William Shakespeare and other classical works, a devised work, plays by local playwrights, plays by emerging playwrights, comedies, tragedies, and our acclaimed International 10-Minute Play Festival.
If you enroll in Theatre, you will see the world from many perspectives. You’ll understand why and how theatre is created. You’ll create your own works of art, on and off stage.
You’ll analyze texts, research time periods, explore your imagination all with the goal of creating an interactive, fully dimensional and powerful performance meant to entertain and educate audiences throughout time and the world. You’ll have many options for careers in which you will use your Liberal Arts education in ways you never thought possible. You’ll make lifelong friends. You’ll have a blast!
