Change Your Life, Change Your World

What do you do with a degree in Theatre? Parents, family, and friends will ask you that question. What will you answer?

Whether you want to act, direct, design, pursue the business side of theatre, or teach, Adams State Theatre will give you the opportunity to explore your options.

Our students take courses in acting, directing, design, stagecraft, costuming, performance art, improvisation, theatre and social change, playwriting, theatre history, dramatic literature, and much more.

From edgy student directed shows to award-winning faculty productions, we strive to present the best in college theatre. We produce 6-8 productions a year in our state-of-the-art Main Stage Theatre and intimate Xperimental Theatre to help you receive a quality education that goes beyond the classroom.

Through our participation in the Dead Man Walking Theatre Project, Suzan-Lori Parks’ 365 Days/365 Plays Project, the National Endowment for the Arts’ Big Read Project, and The Romeo and Juliet Project, our theatre program has achieved a growing national reputation for creating exciting community-wide theatre events that ask big questions about the world in which we live.

Most of all, our program is about opportunity.

You won’t sit on the sidelines until your junior or senior year. From day one, you will have the chance to pursue your passion for theatre.  As an Adams State theatre major, you will change your life and, just maybe, your world!
