Theatre Arts and Dance Department

Theatre Practicum

Theatre Practicum is an opportunity available to students who seek to create with other students the “delicate illusionary reality that we call the theatre.” With practicum, students gain extensive experience in the production of plays. The department believes that the education of students is enriched by participation in the actual process of creating a performance and by participation in a variety of experiences in that process. The emphasis is on commitment, teamwork, and dedication to the process towards a common goal.
