The Theatre & Media Arts Department recognizes that many people have a passion for theatre and media arts but do not necessarily want to pursue it as a career. Nevertheless, theatre and media arts experiences can help you develop skills which may prove to be a valuable supplement to your resume. We have several opportunities available for such individuals:
THEATRE & MEDIA ARTS MINORS
The Theatre & Media Arts Department currently provides two minor programs for interested students: the Theatre Arts Studies Minor and the Media Arts Studies Minor. See the Theatre and Media Arts Minors Academic Plan (MAP) for more information.
THEATRE & MEDIA ARTS PRODUCTIONS
Non-majors are welcome to participate in all theatre and media arts productions as actors and as members of stage and film crews. Audition notices are regularly posted on the bulletin boards just outside the department office (D-581 HFAC) and outside of the Nelke Theatre on the second floor of the HFAC.
THEATRE MASK CLUB PRODUCTIONS
Everyone is welcome to participate in Mask Club productions, directed by students enrolled in TMA 436. The productions are on Thursdays at 1, 2, and 4 p.m. in the Nelke Theatre located in the North end, 2nd floor of the Harris Fine Arts Center (HFAC). Please note that times may vary during Spring and Summer semesters. Look for auditions on the Nelke Callboard by the Nelke Theatre (HFAC 2nd floor).
