Dedicated and approachable faculty, a close-knit and diverse student community, and a commitment to helping you reach your professional goals sets PLU Theatre & Dance apart from other programs.
PLU Theatre & Dance prides itself on our dynamic and challenging curriculum supported by a season of up to 10 productions each year. Our program trains students in all aspects of theatre and dance: from musical theatre, acting, technical theatre and design, to foundational dance styles, stage management, choreography, producing, directing, and playwriting.
The Karen Hille Phillips Center for the Performing Arts houses much of our activities. This amazing facility provides state-of-the-art equipment, cutting-edge technology, inviting student spaces, and professional laboratories that students will benefit from for years to come.
MEET THE FACULTY
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!
