Perform Meaningfully logo

“Perform meaningfully” is our invitation and challenge to students and graduates whether in acting, dance or design classes at SCU, on the Broadway stage, as artistic directors of theatre and dance companies, as professionals in Silicon Valley or as performing arts teachers in service to others.

The Department of Theatre and Dance fuels your passion for performance and prepares you to make it a meaningful lifetime commitment.

About Our Program

The Department of Theatre and Dance celebrates the creativity of the human spirit, offering a well-rounded education that leads to a bachelor of arts degree in Theatre Arts with emphasis in either theatre or dance. The department also offers minors in theatre, dance, theatre design and technology and musical theatre (an interdisciplinary minor offered in collaboration with the Department of Music). The program emphasizes academic rigor, artistic discipline, and creative expression. All students work closely with faculty and staff mentors. Majors fulfill all requirements set forth by the Undergraduate Core Curriculum, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Department of Theatre and Dance.

Distant island with bird silhouettes

What country, friends, is this?

A long trek home. Shipwrecks & disguises & missing brothers. Over there, a sister with a set of instructions. Under the bridge, a mother with five kids. Look up, look out, look overhead. Ghosts & dreams & the courage to fly.

Welcome to our 2024-2025 season
