Department of Theatre
The theatre program at Midwestern State University is devoted entirely to undergraduate instruction. As a result, motivated, capable students find themselves quickly involved not just in the classroom but also in production work onstage and backstage. The program emphasizes the importance and interrelatedness of all aspects of theatre: performance, design, technical theatre, and scholarship. The theatre faculty members seek to cultivate an atmosphere of collaboration, ensemble, and mutual respect. While the program is broad enough to cover the essential areas of the discipline, it also allows for specialization. Theatre majors are required to complete a basic core of courses covering theatre history, script analysis, acting, directing, and design/tech. They then move on to select an emphasis in acting/directing or design/technical theatre.
