Overview

Drawing on this vibrant heritage, the curriculum promotes an awareness of theater as a global phenomenon embodying the contributions of diverse cultures and explores theater as a forum for reflecting the human experience as revealed through the dynamics of theater production.

With this in mind, students in the Theater program of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) engage in the presentation of dramatic work in a community where creativity and critical thought combine in the exploration of the artistic and intellectual challenges inherent in the making of theater.
