The Northeastern Department of Theatre is a community dedicated to creativity, collaboration, and excellence in the pursuit of innovative ways to see, to investigate, and to make theatre for a new generation. We offer students a transformative theatre education by aligning performance and production with academic inquiry and professional experiential learning. Our multidimensional students develop a unique understanding of professionalism and entrepreneurship as the foundations of meaningful careers. We embrace diverse methods, philosophies, and measures of success. Through values of generosity, integrity, respect, and rigor, we explore theatre as a living art that engages with our global society and the moment in which we live.
