About DePauw Theatre
DePauw Theatre students use the unique advantages of the liberal arts environment to craft individualized paths to a professional life in the arts. Faculty are active playwrights, actors, directors, designers and scholars, and the foundational training in the classroom and on our stages gets fleshed out with internships, study abroad opportunities and summer work. All DePauw Theatre students are encouraged to pursue their calling and are guided in that effort.
We offer unique experiences for students to work their way up to design, produce and direct on our main stage seasons, in addition to performance opportunities that have no graduate students competing for roles. DePauw Theatre produces five mainstage productions each year, including musicals. There are 2-3 student productions each year, a festival of original plays each semester, an improv/sketch comedy troupe and insomniac theatre. Cooperative arrangements with the School of Music, the Art Department and Creative Writing program offer additional creative training for the growing artist.
