About Theater Production (B.F.A.)

Theater is a creative and collaborative art in which true excellence can only be achieved through exploration of craft. Our focus in the Theater Department at Mason Gross School of the Arts is to provide aspiring theater professionals with a unique experience including intensive studio classes, innovative academic curricula, and ground-breaking, fully supported productions.

Production students are part of a 3.5-year program designed to train students to be professionals in the fields of costume technology, stage management, or technical direction. The program combines integrated knowledge and respect for all aspects of theater at a variety of production levels to create artistically astute, well-versed, thoughtful production professionals. Core training and curriculum come together in production practice, which informs the process on each play. Working from a core artistic sensibility, production students support the work of the contributing artists as together they bring the performance to realization.

Areas of study include costume technology, stage management, and technical direction.

To apply, applicants must submit the Mason Gross supplemental application and complete a portfolio review and interview with faculty.
