About Theatre

The study of theatre at Muskingum University combines theory and practice in the classroom with performance in theatre productions which are open to all students. Academic offerings provide students with a complete theatre experience which includes reading, writing, designing, building, acting, and directing plays.

The department of Communication, Media, & Theatre has a large and diverse population of students, staff, and faculty. In the liberal arts tradition, however, our paths often merge in interesting and unexpected ways. The links below will give you an overview of each of the department's primary areas of focus.

The study of theatre combines theory and practice in the classroom with performance in theatre productions which are open to all students. Academic offerings provide students with a complete theatre experience which includes reading, writing, designing, building, acting, and directing plays.

Theatre majors may concentrate in one of five areas: acting, technical theatre, directing, dramatic literature, or theatre history and criticism. In addition, students frequently combine theatre with other majors in order to broaden their career choices. Facilities include a flexible theatre space and a small experimental theatre space. Students may be active in Muskingum Players, an organization promoting interest in theatre.
