Theatre people are a tribe – creative, unconventional, generous, dedicated, and visionary. We develop a unique bond through collaboration. Northeastern’s theatre community is a vibrant and welcoming fusion of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guest artists in the classroom, the studio, backstage, and onstage.
