Majoring in theatre is so much more than simply performing on stage. You will gain a solid knowledge of theory, history, literature and criticism, which is critical to the craft. The theatre degree program at the University of Mount Union will expose you to all of the necessary components of the field and offer you ample opportunities to “practice” what you learn. From acting, lighting, sound and properties to stage and box office management, you will experience the variety of positions and areas offered by the field of theatre and be prepared for career success. Active participation in our theatrical productions supplements your classroom study, providing hands-on experience.
