Whether you are interested in Theatre or Dance as a major, a minor, or just as an extra-curricular activity, we have the program for you. We have an invigorated and fresh approach to theatre at UWL. You will be a person in the theatre department and never just another number. We are a liberal arts undergraduate program, so you will never have to compete with graduate students for the same acting roles or backstage and design assignments.
We produce a 6-play season with recent productions including: Murder on the Orient Express, Metamorphoses, The Rocky Horror Show, Cabaret, She Loves Me, Big Fish, The Country Wife, and Hair. Come and work with us! Become part of a community on campus just as soon as you'd like. Audition, volunteer, sign-up for class credit for production work; whatever fits your needs. Most auditions are cold readings (nothing to prepare) and backstage work is always available. Majors and minors can emphasize in Performance, Design/Tech, General Theatre, Arts Administration, Theatre Management, Musical Theatre or Dance (minor only)!
Theatre and Dance at UWL is a vibrant and growing program. We have a dedicated faculty and a strong student body who collaborate to create exciting and cutting-edge theatre: Theatre that matters. Feel free to contact us for information or just to ask a question at any time. Join us for a Campus Close-Up or call and set up a campus visit. We'll have you visit classes, meet with students and faculty members, get you tickets for a play or let you attend a rehearsal. We look forward to meeting you and working with you.
Come be part of a community of artists and creators at UWL!
