Live Theatre Arts at Carroll University is one of the most powerful forms of communication. It connects us to one another by reminding us of the shared human experience. Through artistic expression, it engages and invites conversation, celebrates our humanity and explores questions—both timeless and timely—that touch our emotions and challenge our existing beliefs. 


About the program

Carroll University’s Theatre Arts major provides you with the knowledge needed to successfully operate an arts organization or venue while also acquiring skills to perform in productions. You’ll gain a well-rounded understanding of how a theatre production comes together from conception to curtain call as well as gain important skills in communication, collaboration, leadership, mentorsip, project management, networking, persuasion and negotiation.

Our program combines classroom study with opportunities to participate in fully-produced stage productions. Productions include a wide range of genres, from musicals and comedies to satire and tragedy. 

Our goal is to provide students with a wide variety of experiences, working on productions that range from historical to contemporary, Broadway to off-Broadway to original work. You’ll learn how to direct, build stage sets, design sound and lighting and craft costumes. You’ll also have the chance to write, direct and perform your own work. 

Our students have the opportunity to work alongside professional, Equity actors at least once each semester.
