Our mission is to provide high-level education and training in theatre within the context of a liberal arts environment. Our majors are committed to the performance or production aspects of theatre where we combine preprofessional training with a solid academic core in order to prepare our students for entry into the theatre world or graduate programs. But theatre also prepares our students for a career path within other cognate disciplines.
For theatre minors and general university students, we offer a range of production opportunities as well as academic courses to augment the general student’s breadth of knowledge of this, the world’s oldest art form.
For the university, Mitchell community and beyond, we provide outreach programs and an eclectic and engaging season of productions that promulgate our view of theatre as both art and humanity.
