Theatre Uncut

Theatre Uncut (formerly Acting Uncut) is a residential high school experience where you will spend 9 days with us here at Liberty. You will interact with Liberty Theatre faculty in small master classes, collaborate with current theatre majors, experience Liberty University up close and personal, and enjoy the freedom to integrate faith and art.

Theatre Uncut features two distinct experiences from which to choose: Performance: Onstage and Production: Backstage. The Onstage track will focus on performance theory and campers will perform a final performance cabaret. The Backstage track will focus on design and production and campers will help produce and manage the cabaret. At Theatre Uncut you will collaborate with fellow artists from across the nation, develop long-lasting friendships, and refine the skills and talents that God has given you.
