Admissions: Programs of Study


Theatre


Marywood's theatre program will prepare you for a career in contemporary theatre by providing professional instruction in acting, playwriting, and stage direction. Students participate in all aspects of production, broadening their knowledge and developing an understanding of the diverse skills necessary to produce modern theatrical shows.

Out small class sizes ensure that you receive personalized instruction. Courses are taught by faculty who are working professionals in the entertainment industry.

Productions

Each year, students produce a musical and non-musical production on the main stage in the 1100-seat Sette Laverghetta Center for Performing Arts. Students build the scenery, construct costumes, hang and focus lights, and perform in these productions.

Recent productions include Godspell, To Kill A Mockingbird, Songs for a New World, Our Town, Measure for Measure, Dead Man’s Cell Phone, A Little Night Music, Crimes of the Heart, Miss Julie, Proof, Once Upon a Mattress, The Fantasticks, and All in the Timing.

All seniors must present a capstone project. Often, these capstones are productions performed in our flexible seating Black Box Theatre.
