Creating theatre establishes a community that tells stories of God, His people, and His world. Be challenged by dedicated and experienced teachers and directors to think and respond authentically, whether performing on stage or working behind the scenes. Learn how theatre relates to literature, storytelling, and music while exploring the range of human experience through observation, analysis, and performance.

STUDENT STORY

Paige Louter
Theatre student ‘13

" The program size was hugely beneficial: I got to try my hand at scenic art, production administration, hair and makeup design, stage management, and acting. I think there was always an incredibly strong sense of community and collaboration among theatre students across the years, rather than an atmosphere of competition. Making a life in theatre requires a lot of internal motivation. I’m grateful to the professors at Redeemer for providing me with so many opportunities to flex those muscles early on, and for pushing their students to pursue academic and professional excellence.
