About

The Department of Theater in the College of Arts and Sciences at Case Western Reserve University offers education and participation in all aspects of drama, with course offerings in acting, stagecraft, costume design, scene design, directing, screenwriting and playwriting. Students in the Bachelor of Arts benefit from a low student to faculty ratio which ensures that they will be able to work closely with highly skilled professionals. Undergraduates have the opportunity to perform on stage as well as to serve on the design and technical crews in the four mainstage theatrical productions each year. The department treats all performances as educational experiences and welcomes the participation of all students regardless of their academic majors and career goals.

At the graduate level, the Master of Fine Arts in Acting program—a collaboration between the university and Cleveland Play House—represents a unique alliance between one of the oldest academic theater programs in the United States and the nation’s first regional theater.
