Our highly-regarded theater program encompasses both classes and a full performance season in our black box space; students receive course credit for participation in plays (both onstage or backstage).
Burke's "no cut" policy applies to our theater program and we deliberately select works with large ensembles, so that all students who complete the audition process will receive a role.
