Program Overview

The Theatre Department offers a curriculum to serve two types of students: those who plan to attend graduate school, those who plan to pursue a career in the profession or to use their training for vocational recreation.

The Theatre Department provides cultural enrichment for the College and the community through its production schedule, representing a “Theatre With A Purpose.” Participation in the productions of the department is open to any student enrolled at Centenary College.
