Theatre Faculty & Staff
We are a community of creative, unconventional, generous, dedicated, and visionary theatre people. We develop unique bonds between students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guest artists in the classroom, the studio, backstage, and onstage.
Each year, we invite professional guest directors and designers to work hand in hand with students on our productions.
Faculty Creative Practice
The Department of Theatre is a hub for Creative Practice Research. We offer many exciting and challenging opportunities to develop and advance new knowledge about theatre and performance in the 21st century. Through a combination of interdisciplinary research, scholarship, teaching, publications, and productions, our faculty, staff, students, and alumni share strengths in several areas of research and artistic engagement.
Areas of research expertise and inquiry comprise a wide range, from exploring the impact of political theatre and community-based performance to the role of theatre pedagogy in lifelong learning. From understanding the influence of race in the actor-audience relationship to the application of acting techniques to business and interpersonal communication. From leveraging the training in movement and voice to collaboration with robotics and public health. Encounters with this scholarship can offer new capacities for innovative and impactful discoveries and ideas.
