From Broadway to the Bard, this degree program features practical learning experiences, international theatre studies and the opportunity to both study with a highly credentialed faculty and be mentored by accomplished theatre professionals. Freshmen Theatre Arts Majors will study Basic Acting, Voice, Stagecraft and the History of Theatre on the campus at Madison, NJ. During the student's second semester of Sophomore year or first semester of Junior year, they will spend a semester at FDU’s overseas campus in England. Wroxton College is located just outside Stratford-on-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare and the home of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Upon returning to Madison, students will be able to track into a variety of areas such as Acting, Musical Theater, Directing, Playwriting or Design & Technical Production. They will also have the opportunity to intern with a casting director, theatrical agent or small off Broadway theater company in New York City. Madison’s proximity to New York City enables students to take advantage of the many opportunities available in the “theater capital of the world”, such as seeing professional shows in our "Night at the Theater" class. The Theatre Program produces four main stage productions each year—including two musicals—in the 440-seat Dreyfuss Theater, all directed and designed by professionals in their area. In addition, the student run drama club, Starshine, presents cabaret shows, showcases and other events in a small black box theater throughout the year.
