Our mission is to provide a transformative education that aligns performance and production with academic inquiry and professional experience as we engage our global society through the living art of theatre.

The Department of Theatre is a community dedicated to creativity, collaboration, and excellence—and committed to the values of generosity, integrity, respect, and rigor—all in the pursuit of innovative ways to see, investigate, and make theatre for a new generation.

Through extensive production and performance experiences and working in professional theatre environments on co-op, students develop a deep understanding of the skills and artistry needed to create the foundation of a meaningful career.

Theatre is a living art that must be experienced in the moment. Each year, our department mounts six to eight productions offering more than 50 performances of classics and new plays, musicals and dramas, comedies and devised work. We invite the Northeastern community to experience diverse and dazzling theatrical events that showcase our outstanding students.
