“I love how easy it is to get involved with 剧院 at Coe. The best way to learn about the art of performing is by being involved in a production. 在科, students get more one-on-one attention from staff, making it easier to improve your theatrical skills.”

Carmen is a biology 和 musical 剧院 major, who has worked with her advisor to develop a four-year plan. She says Coe faculty often share audition opportunities outside of Coe because they know practice is the key to honing your craft.


As a 剧院 student you will participate in at least one of the three mainstage productions held in Dows Theatre each year 和 have a number of opportunities to partake in student-directed or student-generated productions. Sound, costumes, makeup 和 props are all student responsibilities.

Why 戏剧艺术 at Coe?

Our mission is to provide practical 和 theoretical training in 剧院 making (through classes, labs 和 productions) with a collaborative process that builds community, fosters global awareness 和 examines the complexities of diverse human narratives.

The 剧院 arts program is designed to provide a balance between academic 和 experiential learning for all interested students. Our goal is to offer opportunities for participation in all aspects of 剧院, on stage 和 in the classroom, 和 to enrich the cultural 和 academic life of the college.

The program accommodates both majors 和 minors through 课程s focused on theatrical history, theory 和 literature, as well as through training in acting, 导演, design 和 theatrical production. This foundation prepares you for graduate study 和 for any field that values high-level communication skills, as well as careers in 剧院 as teachers, 艺术家, technicians or managers.

To help you prepare for graduate study 和/or a professional career, all majors are required to present an audition piece or portfolio for annual review beginning your second year. The senior seminar provides a capstone experience, giving you an opportunity to reflect on your development as a 剧院 artist 和 to examine 剧院 as a collaborative art form.

You may choose to complete a general 剧院 major or an emphasis in acting, 导演 or technical/design. You also may opt to focus on 剧本创作 or 戏剧作法.
