It’s time to explore your potential

Fancy theatrical mask against a white background

Beyond real-world directing, management, dramaturgy, acting, design, and technical experience, as an FLC Theatre major, you'll also work directly with internationally renowned actors, playwrights, and directors. From day one until graduation, Theatre courses incorporate visual art, literature, dance, sewing, technology, engineering, math, history, woodworking, and the sciences for a dynamite degree. Auditions are not required to become a major unless you're seeking a scholarship. We do hold auditions, however, for individual performances.
