The Department of Theatre is proud of its students, faculty, and alumni and their many accomplishments:
For more than thirty years, the McCoy Theatre has been the production arm of the Department of Theatre.
The department′s efforts to understand theatrical performance find application in this large, black box space. The McCoy′s seasons seek to investigate the human condition, broadly, and aim to engage with the college′s liberal arts curriculum. In this respect, the McCoy looks not only to test and to try what theatrical performance does, but looks to collaborate with the campus′s various programs of study.
If you’re an aspiring artist, musician, singer, or actor, or have an interest in technical theater, you may qualify for one of Rhodes′ Fine and Performing Arts Scholarships.
The Fine and Performing Arts Scholarships are available to students who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in art, music, or theatre.
The Department of Theatre maintains relationships with local, national, and international institutions at which our students regularly pursue study and training in the form of internships, training programs, and other programs of study. These institutions include:
The Things We Do
The department aims to help students explore and study theatre in depth and in variety.
Our curriculum strives to understand theatre, and expects earnest engagement of students. We understand that theatre arises from a combination of creativity and discipline, from inspiration and study, and that this artistic milieu not only produces skills that transfer to all sorts of futures, but also shapes human beings who can shape the future.
