Theatre

A Northeastern Theatre education aligns collaborative theatre-making (production, design, and performance) with academic study and practice-based research. Our students develop a rich foundation for meaningful and prosperous careers through experiential learning. We are committed to the ongoing pursuit of intersectional social and racial justice. We incorporate diverse methodologies, approaches, and measures of success. While we engage with the moment in which we live, we are constantly evolving, learning, and adapting.

Theatre is where we rehearse for the unexpected and where we learn to live with uncertainty. Students learn to engage artistically in difficult conversations and make sense of what they witness around them.
