The minor in theatre allows creativity to complement the core of a liberal arts education and use theatre as a laboratory to explore how humanities, sciences and other arts intersect. Students develop artistic discipline in acting, directing, and design for theatre while enhancing students' historical and analytical skills through an appreciation of theatre history and dramatic literature.
- Main stage productions open to students of all majors and years
- Prominent guest artists create work for the main stage season and interact closely with students.
- Collaborate with Department of Music for musical theatre productions.
What You'll Study
Go behind the scenes
You’re in good company
Trinity’s theatre faculty help students unlock their creative abilities in the performing arts by cultivating a shared experience of theatre that fosters understanding, inspires action, and changes lives.
Step into the spotlight
Join main stage productions beginning your first year or take advantage of student-run productions. Whatever you do, you’ll be surrounded by world-class facilities, from gorgeous theaters to well-stocked prop, set design, and costume studios.
When You Graduate
Preparation for any role
Graduates with theatre minors learn how to bring creativity and discipline to any field. They leave Trinity able to bring down a house on their own, share the limelight with others, and improvise and critically think through any situation. These skills keep them from waiting in the wings—instead, they’re ready to step into the spotlight after they take their final bow at Trinity.
Nicholas (Nico) Champion '19
“Make the most of all that comes and the least of all that goes.” These are words of wisdom from Nico Champion’s grandmother and an admonition the ebullient alumnus certainly took to heart at Trinity, where phenomenal opportunities did come his way.
Jeff Watkins ’78
“What we do at the Shakespeare Tavern is fun as hell! It’s not stuffy at all, and I guarantee you will understand the play.” So declares Jeff Watkins, president and artistic director of the Atlanta Shakespeare Company.
Tim Jo ’06
For actor Jo, working on NBC’s hit television show was a dream. The diverse character drama is known as an intimate, raw, tear-jerker unafraid of depicting topics such as grief, transracial adoption, racism, and weight and body image issues.
