A Powerful Educational Experience
As one of the oldest professional theatre training programs in the region, Niagara University is well-known for preparing students for careers that take them anywhere from Broadway to Hollywood. One-on-one mentorship with theatre faculty gives increased confidence – both onstage and offstage – throughout every step of the experiential learning process.
Since 1964, NU Theatre has proudly educated and entertained audiences through a variety of annual productions, giving students an artistic playground for growth and development and a heightened sense of purpose in their artistic pursuits. Moreover, our multi-faceted alumni network consisting of artists with credits from Broadway, international tours, TV and radio, can give a clarity of direction for the exciting future that awaits you.
A Cutting-Edge Curriculum
Our unique curriculum fuses a conservatory approach to theatre training with a liberal arts education. NU’s theatre programs require an intense schedule and disciplined focus on both academic coursework, and practical production experience. Performance majors can expect courses in voice, acting, dance and movement, funda-mentals of production, playwriting, just to name a few. Design and production majors will focus on scene design, costume and lighting design. Theatre faculty strive to raise the bar in theatre excellence, and bring inspiring and new opportunities to students to meet the evolving demands of the industry.
