Student Opportunities

ACU Theatre's limited enrollment provides extensive performance opportunities and close faculty mentoring for each student. Training reflects cutting-edge, contemporary curriculum including the Alexander Technique, the Linklater Vocal Technique, and concepts of actor training from Uta Hagen, Michael Chekhov, Robert Cohen, Meisner and Stanislavski. This training equips students for ACU Theatre's range of stunning productions each season, including both faculty-directed and student-directed works. See the 2016-2017 ACU Theatre season.

In addition, ACU Theatre majors have the opportunity to spend a semester studying under Broadway professionals and Tony Award-winning instructors in New York City, through a partnership with Syracuse University's Department of Drama.
