Welcome to the Department of Theatre and Dance. We are a community of artists and scholars dedicated to teaching, researching and serving the theatre art in Southeastern Florida.
Theatre has been an integral part of Florida Atlantic University since its beginning, and that tradition continues through our B.A., B.F.A. and M.F.A. programs. We focus on the processes of theatre production and our students are encouraged to become involved in the creation of the theatre art from their first day on campus. The department’s programs are built on developing you as an individual through practical production experiences, development of your skills in studio classes, and enriching your creative abilities through academic classroom experiences. We endeavor to look at each student as an individual, considering your desires and goals within the framework of a solid education.
We invite you to attend our regular departmental mainstage productions, as well as our Theatre Lab events. We have recently established this new and exciting program which bridges the professional and academic worlds of theatre. In its inaugural season, Theatre Lab will consist of staged readings, new play festivals and educational outreach programming. For upcoming Theatre Lab events, click here.
