The mission of the Theatre concentration in Clemson University’s Department of Performing Arts is to prepare students for lifelong careers in the theatre profession. Through our curriculum, productions, and professional development training we educate and inspire future theatre artists and audiences to enrich theatre arts in our community, state, and nation.
The strength of the theatre concentration is its people - the students who demonstrate a passion for learning and creative discovery, as well as the faculty and staff who maintain professional careers at regional, national, and international levels and bring that experience to the students. Our program resides in the Brooks Center for the Performing Arts, an award-winning, state-of-the-art facility that also houses concentrations in music and audio technology.
The Clemson Players, the very active student theatre organization, co-sponsors an annual season of theatre with productions designed and directed by faculty, guest artists, and students. Clemson theatre students have built successful careers in every aspect of the profession, from the technical to the performative.
The program offers diverse opportunities through internships and travel to events such as The Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, the Spoleto Festival, the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Conference, and more.
