Learn by acting, directing, designing, creating, and building with a faculty that focuses on each student! You can make Lynchburg your creative home, where you can cultivate your hidden talents and hone the skills you need for both artistic mastery and professional life.
Create a personalized learning plan in conjunction with engaged, supportive faculty to reach your performance, design, or technical goals.
We offer both a theatre major and minor. Majors may select an emphasis in performance or design-technical theatre. The core emphasis is a great choice for those wishing a double major or a broad exposure to theatre art. Get involved your very first year with open auditions for all parts in all productions plus multiple opportunities for leadership in backstage creative positions in set design, construction, props, and costume construction. The Dillard theatre includes a 275-seat main stage theatre, studio theatre/classrooms, scenic and properties studios, and a bustling costume shop.
We produce three main stage productions per year, plus several studio theatre productions. Recent productions include Cabaret, The Tempest, The Laramie Project, and Anything Goes.
Scholarships of up to $3,000 per year are available for performance, design, and technical areas.
