Theatre

Wooster Theatre seeks to engage and challenge both the novice and the aspiring actor, writer, designer, or director. Courses in Acting and Technical Theatre provide practical, real-life training for students to hone their craft while working on productions in the Black Box Theatre. Acting classes are based on the work of Sanford Meisner, who described the foundation of acting as “the reality of doing.” Students are guided through the study and performance of classic and contemporary scenes and plays. Technical Theatre electives immerse students in the world of backstage theatre through the design, creation and performance of Wooster productions. The study and practice of theatre at Wooster provides a nurturing and safe environment for students to discover their place on or offstage, while becoming more engaged, empathetic, creative, and confident human beings.
