Welcome to Arkansas State University!

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.
