Students pursuing a Theatre Degree on the Statesboro campus have opportunities to perform, design, and direct in the state of the art Center for Art and Theatre, a variable seating black box space that serves as our primary performance venue. In addition, the Performing Arts Center, an 800 plus proscenium venue, is also used for performances.
Our students are actively involved in creating theatre as they study it. Connection with production and classes occurs throughout the season. Students are given the opportunity to hone their skills and present their work in an award-winning performance and design program.
The Season consists of four mainstage productions, with a rotation of Contemporary and Classical work. Each season is chosen with an intention to bring opportunities to students that include African American Theatre, Shakespeare, and new works as well as a foundation in several genres and eras.
Our students are involved with the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (with several national award winners) and the South Eastern Theatre Conference (SETC) where we have a 95% placement rate for our technical and design students. Students have performed internationally at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and are encouraged to study abroad in England, Ireland, Italy and Japan with the support of scholarships.
