Theatre CoursesTheatre is the art of giving life in performance to dramatic literature. Production is at the very center of our award-winning Theatre and Dance program. Each season UAA Theatre and Dance produces four plays and two dance concerts on its "modified thrust" Mainstage, and in the Jerry Harper Studio Theatre, a fully-equipped, black-box space. Student-directed scenes, one-acts, and full-length plays are also presented yearly in the Harper. Department plays are cast at open auditions, and on average more than 100 majors, non-majors and members of the community are involved in our productions each year. All Theatre and Dance majors are required to participate in Mainstage productions and/or related departmental activities.
