How To Prepare For The Audition

Interview With Faculty

 

Theatre Program

From Shakespeare to Sondheim, "Angels in America" to "In the Heights," we stage productions that challenge our performers, thrill audiences and showcase the brilliance of our faculty, and we have the national honors to prove it.

The Theatre Program at Saint Mary’s provides conservatory-caliber training in a uniquely student-centered Liberal Arts setting. We believe that the theatre is a force that can wake us up and spark ethical action in the world. Through theatre training - whether as actors, directors, designers, playwrights, technicians, or stage managers – we can find greater freedom, generosity, and courage, in our creative work and in our relationships with others.

The Saint Mary’s Theatre Program is a close-knit community, fostering a collaborative (not competitive) environment; yet we are located within striking distance of the Bay Area’s vibrant performance scene. Thus we offer the best of both worlds: individualized attention and mentoring, alongside unique opportunities to engage with working professionals. Our students are challenged, and inspired, by an array of master classes, guest speakers, theatre-going excursions, internships, and more.

The Theatre Program offers two separate degree tracks:

Performance and Theatre Studies

Design and Technical Theatre

Our curriculum integrates practical and technical coursework with performance and production opportunities, and with the study of theatre history, theory, and dramatic literature, producing deeper thinkers and more dynamic theatre-makers.
