About Theatre Performance
Learn the Craft and Soar
Theatre is not just a major, it’s a way to empower your voice. To discover and transform yourself. Theatre at Butler is a community. You become a part of a safe, fun place to learn and experience passion and insight.
Learn from working professionals and experience live drama. Each year, Butler’s theatre department stages a classical piece, a children’s play, a musical, and/or an original script. Each work is carefully chosen and expertly directed. Working guest artists present workshops.
By studying theatre, your perspective about acting changes. You learn to read between the lines of a script and discover how to be heard without speaking and how to hear what hasn’t been said.
Discover the magic of theatre, and gain confidence. In addition to a career on the stage, theatre majors are sought after in sales, management, communications, and education. Earn a two-year degree in theatre or simply participate while you major in another field. Take your degree to a job or transfer to a four-year school.
