“All the world’s a stage.”

Washington College drama students play many different characters and many different roles behind-the-scenes, while learning about the theatrical arts and about themselves. As a drama major, you’ll learn the nuts and bolts of acting, directing, and production, explore the history of theater, and learn to act and think imaginatively.

Whatever your interests, there is something for you in WAC Drama. Drama majors can write a script, perform, direct, stage manage, or design a show to complete their senior capstone. Courses in history, acting, directing, design and dramaturgy prepare our students for internships in cities such as Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., graduate work, and careers in the theater and many other fields.

In Fall 2009, the renovated Gibson Center for the Arts became the centerpiece of the drama department, providing a state-of-the-art environment for performers, technicians, and audiences.

All performances begin at 8 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
