Theatre and Dance
Theatre and Dance occupies a central place in Wooster's cultural life and draws on the creative energies of many students, both majors and non-majors. Each season offers students opportunities to develop their skills as writers, performers, directors, designers, technicians, or dancers. Wooster offers a broad base in the liberal arts on which to build a theatre and dance focus on the artist/scholar model. That model informs the department's wide-ranging production season and course offerings. The small college atmosphere provides a chance for close interaction with faculty from all departments and gives many students the chance to participate in both Freedlander and Shoolroy Theatres on campus.
"my experience at Wooster prepared me greatly for what [would] have otherwise been a very steep learning curve. If you ever have a student griping about the amount of reading/writing in the COW T&D classes, tell them that if they continue school, they will be thanking you in the long run. Trust me."
