Theater invigorates every corner of campus, from medieval Christmas plays staged in the snow to experimental pieces mounted on golf carts, from major Broadway musicals in an 880-seat house to student-written plays flowering in our intimate studio theater.

Learning Through Faith and Exploration

Intent on exploration, EMU Theatre embraces an adventurous model of faith and investigation. Some courses allow students to form a theater troupe over the course of a semester, crafting their own original piece through collaborative work. Other classes range widely across the history of dramatic literature, pulling theatrical works as varied as theater of the absurd and contemporary Native American theater.

Global Perspective and Cross-cultural Learning

EMU Theatre is committed to a global perspective. Through coursework, production, and study-abroad, we engage students in the heritage and contemporary performance practices of global theater artists. Students spend time in intercultural settings, working with and learning from the worlds’ theater artists.

Some students have invested semesters interviewing conflict victims in West Africa for a playwriting project and acting in Passion Plays in the Middle East. On campus, recent global theater projects included redesigning Western theaters for kabuki presentation and constructing theater pieces engaged in African development.
