Briar Cliff University Theatre is exciting, fun and challenging. Opportunities for participation are virtually unlimited! Majors develop professional skills. All participants increase their awareness and understanding of what it means to be human. Students develop the ability to problem solve with courage, conviction and style. A wide variety of courses reveals theories and methods of performance and production.

The department produces shows each year drawn from comedies, dramas, musicals and children's theatre. Students participate in all areas of production. As a component of community outreach, the department provides productions for elementary schools, minority groups and the elderly.

Theatre majors must audition for every show. Casting is on a talent basis and students from all University departments participate. For the junior or senior project, students have the opportunity to take on a significant role as an actor, director or designer of a production. Internships with professional theatres in Chicago are also available.

An essential component of the theatre curriculum is experiential production work. Majors must contribute in the production area to each of the yearly main stage shows. Over four years, minors must participate in four shows either on stage or in other production areas.

The goal of the Theatre Department is to provide students with theatre training to prepare them for a life in professional, community or educational theatre.
