Nurturing theatre artists’ innovation and communication through our cross-disciplinary program.

Why Study Theatre at Luther?

Theatre students graduate with strong communication skills and the ability to work with a diverse group of people. To create theatre students must use innovation and collaboration, which prepares students to succeed in any career field.

Cross-disciplinary program. Our theatre program resides within the Visual and Performing Arts Department. This allows our students to explore the intersections between theatre, dance, and art.

Collaborative environment. The theatre program at Luther produces at least three mainstage productions every year. We have open auditions for all productions, which allows students from a variety of backgrounds to work together.
