Overview

In this Theatre, General Theatre Concentration from Colorado State University, students emerge as well-rounded, renaissance artists and technicians who begin to develop an artist’s aesthetic and world-view. 

Through real-time production experiences, students learn to think critically and creatively, adapting to the rapid-paced, high-energy world of the performing arts. 

Students develop the confidence, skills, portfolios, and industry connections needed to pursue a broad base of careers in the performing arts and other disciplines, or pursue further study at the graduate level.

Educational Opportunity

At CSU, faculty, staff, and professional guest artists — all with extensive experience on stages ranging from Broadway to regional theatres, and worldwide — provide students an experienced lens through which to study every aspect of theatre, including the theory and practice of acting, singing, theatrical design, stage management, technical theatre, dramaturgy, dramatic criticism, storytelling, and playwriting.
