For Prospective Students Interested in Theatre Arts

There are many ways for prospective students to figure out if Western’s theatre arts program is the right fit.

Prospective students and parents can come as our guests to any of the shows we produce.  We produce large scale musicals, Shakespeare, and other classic dramas and comedies in our 350-seat MainStage Theatre.  We produce smaller shows including student-generated works in the Studio Theatre, our black box space.  We also produce an annual show in New York City and a biennial show abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Prospective students can also sit in on our classes. Though our “Shadow Day” program, they can follow a current student and get a taste for the average day in the life of a theatre major at Western. There are plenty of classes they can attend, including acting, dance, costume technology, musical theatre, management or a design/tech class. They can take a tour of our facilities and see our stages, rehearsal rooms, new computer lab, scenic arts and crafts room and costume and scene shops. They can even spend time with the students, hanging out with them in the Campus Center.
