Around the Theatre Department

Vision Statement

Angelo State University Theatre will model and encourage the highest standards of creative activity, professionalism, diversity, and collaboration in arts training and education to become a recognized leader in the arts by the San Angelo community and state of Texas.

Your Studies

In addition to studying dramatic literature and acting, students get hands-on experience in theatre design, playwriting and directing. For more detailed information, read the course descriptions.

Theatre faculty members work to ensure that students are getting the most out of their theatre production participation. They encourage students to audition for performances – faculty members direct six productions each year – and help students become accustomed to and comfortable with the three campus theatres.
