Theatre and Dance faculty are engaged, passionate, and eager to help launch the next generation of theatre artists. They are actively involved in their profession outside of the classroom, are published authors, and strive for excellence in their teaching.

Students will find endless opportunities to interact with professors in class, in the scene shop or costume shop, on stage and backstage, and within the PLU community. Faculty are mentors, leaders, and champions of their students. Click on a faculty member’s photo to learn more about them!
