Theatre

Whether you want to be on stage or behind the scenes, are majoring in theatre or not, there are plenty of opportunities for you to get involved in performances at UJ. We’ll meet you where you’re at with your theatre knowledge and interest level.


Theatre Degrees

Our theatre major and minor give you a chance to study performance, direction, design, stagecraft, and literature. This training provides a comprehensive understanding of the art and the ability to put that knowledge to work after graduation.

Scholarships

We offer theatre scholarships to students who audition before arriving on campus their freshman year. These scholarships are for theatre and non-theatre majors and range up to $6500.

PRODUCTIONS

Our productions are designed to give students a familiarity and proficiency in musical theatre, modern drama, and the classics. We typically do four each year including a musical, one-acts, a student-directed production, and a large spring production.
