The theatre program at Fairfield offers students a liberal arts education infused with the theoretical and everyday aspects of the theatre profession. The major offers a comprehensive education in the art and craft of theatre, and exposed students to its history, literature, theory, and criticism, while providing instruction in acting, directing, design, and technical theatre.

Through this program, you have the benefit of being instructed by an energetic faculty and theatre professionals in acting, dance, design, directing, playwriting, production, and stagecraft.

Offered as either a major or a minor in the theatre program, you learn the details necessary to produce a full production, alongside developing excellent written, verbal and artistic skills. Classroom theories are applied at Theatre Fairfield. Here, you participate in on-campus productions, and are given the opportunity to direct, design, write, and act in various styles of theatre including musicals, comedies, dramas, period and contemporary plays, and original works.

A Theatre major prepares you for a multitude of careers. Our graduates have gone on to become industry experts as well as managers, lawyers, and educators.

Every other year, alumni from Theatre Fairfield, the University's resident theatre company, return to campus to share their insights on life after Fairfield. View the latest session from January 2015:
