Overview

Explore three basic areas of theatre, its historical and literary foundations, the techniques of translating theory into action, and the translation itself, production. Analyze plays, acting courses, voice and movement lessons, stagecraft and directing. Take masterclasses from famous and influential industry leaders through the Margaret Hill Visiting Artist Series, which brought us Sigourney Weaver and Audra McDonald, among others.

The Theatre program offered by Saint Mary's College focuses on technique, blended with the study and analysis of literature through performance. Understand how theatre illuminates and interprets human existence. Your senior year, you'll choose a one-act play to research and analyze on literary and theatrical levels. Then you'll serve as director and designer as you produce the play in a live performance.
