Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre
Onstage, backstage and beyond.
Our Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre program is a studio-intensive course of study designed for students with a strong commitment to a professional career in performance, directing, design, teaching, or theatre ministry.
Our curriculum and facilities are contemporary and cutting-edge. As a theatre student, you’ll receive a well-rounded education with hands-on experience in all phases of backstage work.
BFA theatre students in performance and design tracks have the opportunity to spend their final semester studying with Broadway and award-winning instructors in New York City through the Tepper Semester program. The ACU Theatre Senior Showcase (website coming soon!) is held each year in NYC playing to prospective agents, casting directors, and other industry professionals.
All prospective students must audition and/or interview for tracks including the Theatre Education track. Audition information for ACU's BFA Theatre program can be found below.
Note: Our program is competitive; we accept only 12 incoming students each fall. This allows for more performance and learning opportunities for our students.
