Prospective Students

Imagine yourself studying theatre at
Sam Houston State University

Theatre students will find themselves participating in an active, hands on program based on solid theoretical principles. Theatre majors will be involved in a field of study which encompasses acting, directing, technical theatre, costume, lighting and set design, stage makeup, stage management, theatre history and dramatic theory and criticism. Musical theatre majors find themselves taking classes in voice, musicianship, and dance, in addition to those courses already mentioned.

Students are eligible to be cast in the main season shows every semester as well as to be given leadership responsibilities in design, stage management, directing and technical theatre. As student’s progress in their primary area of interest they may be chosen to design, stage manage, or direct a production. This allows each student to develop a strong resume before graduation.
