Performing Arts at LWA

THEATRICAL

With students from around the world comprising our classes, we expand our understanding of stories on stage and, in turn, our understanding of our shared experiences in the world. Some of our students pursue Theatre beyond the stage of Hessel Hall through community theatre, film, college majors, and even Broadway. Others simply enjoy the benefits a rigorous study of theatre provides, gaining confidence, empathy, patience, and the ability to collaborate and develop work over time— all skills necessary for success in any chosen path. We welcome all students and make it our goal to help you find the role of theatre in your life.
