Drama at St. Mary’s University

Theatre, in its distinctive artistic form, reveals and imparts the complexities of the human condition. The department exposes students to the methods and applications that theater can bring to the educational process through course work, theater production, community-based theater and professional outreach.

Much of the focus of the Department of Drama is not only in the educational and professional development of its students, but also in advocating an appreciation of theater in the cultural life of the University.

StMU Theatre

Students of all majors are welcome to audition to participate in StMU Theatre, on stage or behind the scenes with our technical crew, costume designers and much more.

Stage productions by St. Mary’s students go back to at least 1895, as documented in our archives.
