Outside of the classroom, the theater department focuses its energies on the production of one full-length mainstage show each semester. Mainstages expose students to the many facets of theater production, providing them with the opportunity to gain first-hand experience working on shows both on stage and behind the scenes, as student designers, technicians and stage crew are utilized in addition to student actors. Mainstages are directed alternately by department faculty and guest artists, exposing students to a variety of styles and techniques throughout their study and participation in the theater department.
