At Doane, we believe great theatre programs must prepare and train students for careers in all contemporary and emerging entertainment forms — including live theatre, film, television, video, themed entertainment, and more.
Our students live in a world that is interactive, collaborative, and fueled by their passion for art form — one that encompasses the many forms of professional practice, as well as the theoretical exploration of current entertainment forms.
As a theatre major, you can:
- design and build stage sets
- create costumes
- combine the words and ideas of playwrights
- give television and stage characters personality
Faculty and staff are known for artistic accomplishments, professional achievements, and the ability to serve as inspiring teachers and mentors.
