Welcome to the Department of Theatre

The Department of Theatre is a vibrant community in which faculty scholar/artists, students, and professional staff gather to study and create theatre. Our integrated approach to practice and research includes stagecraft, performance, design, dramatic literature, dramaturgy, and theatre pedagogy, as well as the historical, literary, and cultural basis of theatre and performance. The University Theatre, our laboratory for the teaching, artistic, and research missions of the Department, is a treasured cultural resource serving the needs of the KU, Lawrence, and regional communities.
