About

The Theatre Studies program of Capital University is a co-curricular program, which means we offer both a variety of academic courses and an active production season.

Overview

Theatre at Capital

Theatre always has been a collaborative art. The playwright, the director, the designers, the technicians, the actors and – finally – the audience, all function together to create a work of theatre. The art involved in such work is obviously quite important. Here at the Theatre Studies program of Capital University, we also value the communication that must take place between the various artists and the audience to create dynamic art.  

Shakespeare wrote that the purpose of theatre is to “hold a mirror up to Nature.” What is reflected depends on the mirror and the angle at which it is held and viewed. The reflection might be comic or tragic. It might sing and dance, speak ancient truths, or sound as fresh and searing as last evening’s news. In any case the theatre artist and audience must look in that mirror. We need to see what is reflected. Perhaps we will see – and learn about – ourselves. 

The communication major with an emphasis in theatre studies and its two minors (theatre and entertainment technology) housed in the communication department. Participation in the production season can lead to academic credit through our pre-professional activity program.
