Theatre Major

As a Bethany theatre major, you will choose an emphasis in production or performance. In theatre performance, you will study theatre history, read and discuss literature, and focus on the art of acting. In theatre production you will focus on sound and lighting design, set design and construction, stage management, and directing.

Multiple trips to the Twin Cities' Ordway and Guthrie Theater complement classroom learning, and four annual theatre productions on the Bethany stage provide a chance for you to demonstrate your abilities both on and off stage. In addition to creative development, our theatre department is distinctive in encouraging Christian theatre artists who understand the influence of performance and make ethical decisions. Read more.
