Theatre Arts: Tell the Stories That Shape Our Culture
Develop your craft and sharpen your skills as you prepare for a career in theatre arts.
Gain the hands-on theatrical experience you need through our academic productions and even jump-start your career with the opportunity to earn professional credits through our very own Alluvion Stage Company. Here, you can also benefit from our tradition of original works— integrated from start to finish which can offer you a comprehensive stage experience.
Taught from a Christian worldview, classes in Liberty’s Theatre Arts Department emphasize storytelling and the development of skills required for employment in the industry.
Choose from a BFA in Musical Theatre, a BFA in Acting, a BA or BS in Theatre Arts. And now, any major can add on a minor in Dance and Theatre Arts.
A Christian Theatre Arts Experience
Learn from faculty members who embrace their Christian faith and are active professionals specializing in many areas such as acting, voice, songwriting, directing, dance, choreography, stage movement, stage combat, lighting, design, drama ministry, and theater history. Our programs are built around teaching the art of theatre in order to impact the culture for Christ.
