Through the teaching of theatre, UNO seeks to produce well-rounded students able to synthesize theory and practice, body and mind, interpretation and action. UNO’s theatre arts program (part of the film and theatre degree) will prepare you for the rigorous demands of working in professional theatre, further study at the graduate level, or to benefit students in business, speech pathology, or the social sciences.

Required coursework is designed to expose you to all aspects of the collaborative process – acting, technical production, script analysis, playwriting, and modern and contemporary theatrical production. Plays are taught not only as literature but also as renderings for performance. During production season you will be required participation where you may work in UNO’s theatre facilities like the 225-seat Thrust Theatre, 65-seat proscenium lab, outdoor arena, or costume shop.

UNO is committed to maintaining a wide range of plays, and exposing you to a wide variety of dramatic literature and production styles. Recent productions the theatre program has produced include Tennessee Williams’ The Night of the Iguana, Mark Twain’s Is He Dead?, and Shelagh Stephensepon’s An Experiment with an Air Pump.
