Bachelor of Arts in Theatre

The theatre department at Illinois College is dedicated to teaching students to develop skills they need to enter the professional theatre and the 21st-century workforce at large: creative problem-solving, leadership, collaboration, strong communication skills, critical thinking, and integrity. The department also encourages students to develop their craft through a program of coursework and guided experience in acting, design, directing, playwriting, management, theatre history, and the use of technologies most common in theatre. Practical, hands-on experience in TheatreWorks productions allows them to put their knowledge into practice and to showcase their work for the larger community. We encourage students to pursue their passion, deepening their own humanity and enlivening those around them through the diverse and powerful world of theatre.

Notable Alumni Include:
