Theatre Arts Program

Who We Are

The Theatre Arts program at Kentucky Wesleyan College educates students to become theatre artists and leaders in the field. You will learn about a variety of disciplines of theatre, including acting, directing, playwriting and stage craft. You will be encouraged to think critically, learn about yourself, explore your artistic passions and engage in the global community.

The Theatre Arts program operates in unique partnership with the RiverPark Center, Owensboro Community and Technical College and Brescia University. This partnership provides you with exciting opportunities to gain practical experience while completing your studies in a liberal arts setting.

As a theatre student at KWC, you will develop specialized knowledge and skills as an artist and scholar. Our program nurtures the growth of independent, responsible, creative and well-educated theatre artists prepared to pursue the art at the graduate or professional level.
