PLU’s Theatre & Dance Department 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 theater and dance: from musical theatre, acting, technical theatre and design, to foundational dance styles, stage management, choreography, producing, directing, and playwriting.
Want opportunities? We have them! Each season we produce 4 faculty-directed shows and 4-6 student-directed productions. That’s 8-10 productions every single year!
Want to work with professionals? PLU Theatre & Dance brings in professional guest artists annually to provide workshops, master classes and to work on productions. Our resident faculty of accomplished theater and dance professionals work side-by-side with students in the classroom and on productions. We support internship opportunities at many local theaters. Our alumni are leaders in the field. PLU Theatre & Dance will help you make professional connections while still in school!
Want to get involved right away? We offer onstage and backstage opportunities for all students. You can get involved as soon as you arrive!
Want a degree that can open doors? We offer Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degrees in Musical Theatre, Acting/Directing and Design/Technical and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Theatre. In addition, we offer minors in both Dance and Theatre.
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! Come visit us and see for yourself!
