Hands-On Learning

Students are actively involved in every aspect of production.

Theatre majors form the heart of the Augustana Theatre Company, a community of faculty and students from all majors who regularly gather together to create excellent theatre and to celebrate their love of the arts. Several teams work to create Augustana’s theatre productions: costumes, publicity and marketing, sets, and production crew (lights, props, sound).

Many students also join Brand Name Improv, the theatre’s improvisation team, to further develop their craft. Department-sponsored events like the Claire Donaldson New Play Festival offer students the chance to showcase their talents for a variety of audiences.
