Ozarks theatre students study acting in a variety of styles, including comedy, tragedy, musical, melodrama and farce. They can participate in student-directed mainstage shows, and may be given production responsibilities, including scenery design, lighting and sound control, designing costumes, makeup, lights, and sounds, and graphic design. All this takes place in the University's Walton Fine Arts Center, a state-of-the-art, multi-million dollar theatre and performing arts complex with three theaters for student productions.
Ozarks theatre students have participated in the American College Theater Festival, and presented a series of student-directed one-act plays. And the action doesn't stop when the spring semester ends -- students also have the opportunity to serve in internships across the country and attend summer workshops. Ozarks theatre students have interned at places like the Georgia Shakespeare Festival, the Renaissance Center in Dixon, Tennessee, and Stage Door Manor in New York.
So if the sight of the curtain going up on a brightly lit scene makes you dream of being on stage, come join in the fun at Ozarks. We think you'll be glad you did!
