Message from the Chair

"Pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you."  -Maya Angelou


If you've made it to this webpage, there is a very good chance that you have discovered your passion.  Most likely, Theatre has been a part of your life, and now you're preparing to take an important step forward.  But the love of Theatre is simply not enough, you must be ready to put in the effort.  "Amateurs", it is said, "work until they get it right.  Professionals work until they cannot get it wrong."  

At the Mount Union Theatre Department, you'll find students who share your love of the Theatre, and are equally committed to making this a part of their careers.  You'll also discover faculty members, still working professionally, who are here to guide you through this crucial part of your journey.

I invite you to experience our intimate class sizes, our exciting guest-artists, the newly-constructed Giese Center for the Performing Arts, Shakespeare At The Castle, the family atmosphere, and all the things that make the Theatre Department at Mount Union an exceptional place to be.

Kevin P. Kern
Chair of Theatre
