Beyond the Stage

The Department of Theatre and Dance prides itself on creating both new and exciting works of performance-based art and valuable academic pedagogy. This is done through creating works for the stage, as well as the research, design, practice and creativity that goes on beyond what the audience sees.


Community partnerships, educational opportunities, research centers and extracurricular study options all play a part in the work being created for the stage and the Department of Theatre and Dance is continuously exploring new and intriguing ways to reach a larger community of creative thinkers and artists. We invite you to learn about our community-engaged programs, such as Drama for Schools, connect your classroom with our faculty; and enjoy behind-the-scenes access to one of the largest theatre and dance programs in the country.
