Theatre & Film


In the Department of Theatre & Film, our majors are actively involved in all aspects of production and performance – a key facet in future success. With numerous high-profile campus and community performance opportunities each year, students are in the spotlight the moment they walk in our door.

Comprised of two distinct disciplines and housed in the renowned Wolfe Center for the Arts, we foster the development of the scholar-artist-citizen, through both practical and inquiry-based learning.


Shakespeare's Twelfth Night opens April 20th

Shakespeare's Twelfth Night opens April 20th

In the household of Olivia, two campaigns are being quietly waged - one by the lovesick lord Orsino against the heart of the indifferent Olivia; the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on against the high-handedness of her steward, the pompous Malvolio. When Orsino engages the cross-dressed Viola to plead with Olivia on his behalf, a bittersweet chain of events follows. Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night combines cruelty with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with some of the subtlest poetry and most exquisite songs Shakespeare ever wrote.
