Office Hours | Contact Info

The goal of the Department of Theater at the University of Indianapolis is to develop the skills, crafts, and imaginations of its students within the liberal arts context. The curriculum encompasses the areas of acting, directing, production, scenic design, lighting, dramatic literature, theatre history, and play analysis. This broad preparation at the undergraduate level develops a foundation for any theatre specialization. We strive to help our students acquire and develop the tools they will need in order to succeed in their future pursuits.
