Theatre and performance is made possible through a partnership between Morehouse and Spelman College. We designed the Theatre and Performance curriculum to challenge theatre arts students and encourage discovery, creativity, and scholarship. It provides the formal preparation necessary for advanced academic or professional study. And it offers students experiences in theatre arts through broad-based exposure to the various aspects of drama while contributing to the cultural enrichment of the Atlanta University Center and the community.
