IN A DEPARTMENT THAT IS NURTURING BUT SERIOUS, FOCUSED BUT MULTI-DISCIPLINARY, WITH A CURRICULUM AND PRODUCTIONS THAT ARE DYNAMIC BUT GROUNDED.

The ISU Department of Theater provides a one-of-a-kind, hands-on learning experience in all aspects of theater. Our students work in performance, design, production, direction, and administration before they graduate; this well-rounded training prepares them for a wide variety of roles in the performance and entertainment industries.

Why Study Theater at ISU?

  • Our production season features new and ambitious work, with special attention to student playwrights, designers, and directors.
  • The department as a whole meets weekly, as part of our Theater @ 4 program, for small-scale workshops and experiments.
  • Productions at ISU regularly tour abroad, including Germany, China, and upcoming trips to Vietnam and Ireland.
  • Our summer company in residence, Crossroads Repertory Theatre, allows students to collaborate with professional artists and performers.
