Theater at Goshen

Scene from PippinThe theater program at Goshen College has a strong liberal arts emphasis grounded in communication and performance theory. Students explore major historical, philosophical and artistic movements; gain experience in specialized areas of theater design, acting, voice and directing; and take courses from other departments that augment knowledge and skills for theater studies. Students may focus on theatrical design with art department courses; performance with music classes; oral and written communication with communication courses; and language and literature with courses from theĀ foreign language and English departments.

Central to the theater program itself are productions of full-length mainstage shows and one act plays each semester, providing students with the opportunity to learn and apply both technical and artistic skills. Students are encouraged to explore the many facets of theatrical productions first-hand as actors, designers, technicians and directors.

Auditions are open and encouraged to all–whether you are a math, English or business major. In addition to acting roles, there are also opportunities to stage manage, work with lighting and costumes, and various other assistant roles.
