Students are encouraged to develop creative skills and find their own artistic voice – from stagecraft to character, from classroom to packed house. Whitworth's talented theatre faculty stimulate creativity and discipline through a wide range of performance and production courses including beginning and advanced acting, design and production, movement and dance, and theatre history and theory. The department features three annual main-stage productions; the Festival of Short Plays; staged readings, touring theatre performances; musicals in collaboration with the music department; dance showcases; senior capstone projects; and other performance opportunities.
