Express and explore your love of theatre by learning (through hands-on practice) every aspect of theatre arts. Small classes and close work with faculty mentors (who are also experienced theatre professionals) will give you an edge as you prepare for a wide range of theatre careers or get ready to bring a show to life. 

Partnering with the theatre arts program, the student-run Berry College Theatre Company produces two main-stage productions each semester—while spearheading service projects, fundraisers and social outings.
