Our theatre program resides within the Visual and Performing Arts Department. This allows our students to explore the intersections between theatre, dance, and art. For example, our theatre majors take dance courses, training the body as an expressive instrument. Our program encourages students to explore the performing arts professionally. Luther theatre students pursue professional internships and summer stock positions. They attend conferences and prepare for graduate school. Our alumni follow a variety of career paths. They become artists, scholars, activists, and teachers. Our students create and contribute to our ever-changing world.
