Theatre Students

Theatre and Dance

Theatre and Dance occupies a central place in Wooster's cultural life and draws on the creative energies of many students, both majors and non-majors. Each season offers students opportunities to develop their skills as writers, performers, directors, designers, technicians, or dancers. Wooster offers a broad base in the liberal arts on which to build a theatre and dance focus on the artist/scholar model. That model informs the department's wide-ranging production season and course offerings. The small college atmosphere provides a chance for close interaction with faculty from all departments and gives many students the chance to participate in both Freedlander and Shoolroy Theatres on campus.
