Welcome to the
Department of Theatre

Whether you see yourself on a stage in New York, behind the scenes in Hollywood, in front of your own classroom or changing your corner of the world, we can help you get there.

Find Your Passion

Studying Theatre at A-State means when you learn something in class, you’ll have a chance to put that learning into practice the same day in our vibrant production program. Every aspect of our productions is driven by students applying what they’ve learned. Every student registers for Practicum, a course in which students undertake major creative and technical responsibilities while receiving faculty mentorship.

Our Next Show

God of Carnage

God of Carnage
By Yasmina Reza
Translated by Christopher Hampton

On a playground in Brooklyn, Alan and Annette’s son hit Michael and Veronica’s son in the face with a stick, resulting in two broken teeth. The four parents meet for a civil discussion of the incident. While the evening begins with polite pleasantries, it veers off course into rum-fueled vitriol as the adults devolve into bickering children. Yasmina Reza’s comic masterpiece displays humanity at its most primal and most hilarious extremes.
