Elizabethtown, PA, United States
Elizabethtown College’s Division of Theatre and Dance, in the Fine and Performing Arts Department, offers a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre with an option in one of two concentrations, as well as a minor in theatre with two concentrations.

Overview

The hands-on curriculum encourages students to write, direct, and take part in original theatre productions and dance routines. Many classes take place in our very own Tempest Theatre to encourage our students to get up and feel at home on stage from day one.

Working on stage is excellent training for theatre careers in acting, directing, and stage managing, but also for jobs in film, television, public speaking, law, sales, public relations, arts administration, and ministry work. Working on theatre technology and design is a big boost for those interested in theatre design, interior design, art direction, architecture, art, and computer-aided graphics.
