Our hands-on curriculum encourages students to write, direct, and take part in original theatre productions and dance routines. During your Theatre degree at Elizabethtown, you'll get to enjoy and participate in a number of productions. Typically, Elizabethtown College Theatre puts on three major shows per year. In alternating years, staged readings of student-written work and productions of student-directed work are presented.

With classes in theatre, art, literature, and dance, you’ll receive a mix of theory and practical experience with our program. Within the theatre major, there are two concentrations: performance or theatre technology. With our concentrations you can choose to study the craft of acting, directing, or design, be it scenic, lighting, costume or sound design. We also offer a theatre minor in both concentrations.
