Theatre Departmental Awards are granted to incoming freshmen and transfers who are highly motivated, talented, and passionate about theatre. Once awarded, the amounts carry over from year-to-year and can significantly help by reducing your entire four years of tuition costs. Theatre departmental award amounts can even increase the longer you stay a major in the department with the more involvement you maintain and more responsibility you demonstrate.

Whether you are interested in theatre performance or in our design and technical program, you will have the opportunity to cultivate and enhance your skills and talents while we relieve some of the financial burden.
