About this course
The theatre program introduces students to the study of dramatic literature, theatre history, and the practice of theatre art—including play production, acting, and directing. In addition to contributing to the general education of students, the program seeks to initiate the education of students planning to major in theatre while preparing for careers as theatre professionals or educators.
Studying and participating in theatre provides a foundation for any pursuit demanding the fusion of practical expertise and creative intelligence. The program contributes to the development of theatre that is Native in style and form, provides a forum for the production of Native playwrights, and provides Native theatre experiences to Native and non-Native communities.
