Course info


What is Theatre?

Theatre is a living art. Theatre is storytelling at its most magical. Theatre is reality. Theatre is fantasy. Theatre is the expression of the human condition in its myriad forms throughout history. Theatre is experimentation. Theatre is problem-solving, and Theatre is fun. Theatrical presentations are events involving a collaborative process between playwrights, actors, directors, scenic designers, costume designers, lighting designers, sound designers, technicians, dramaturges, historians and audiences. The theatrical event can be entertaining, evocative, provocative and/or educational. But whatever its form or substance, theatre is always a living, dynamic collaboration between artists and audiences.

Career Opportunities in Theatre

The theatre world is an ever changing playground of ideas and art in motion. Careers in this field, though challenging at times, are never dull. The typical image of a career in theatre is one in which the actor moves to New York and embarks on a Broadway stage career, but this is only one option for one aspect of theatre.

There are many positions in theatre: Actor, Director, Set Designer, Costume Designer, Lighting Designer, Sound Designer, Technical Director, Producer, Choreographer, Dancer, Singer, Musical Director, Dialect Coach, Fight Choreographer, Stage Manager, General Manager, Playwright, Dramaturge, Artistic Director, Managing Director, Production Manager, Special Effects Designer, Makeup and Hair Designer, Technician/Artisan (sets, lights, costumes, sound, and props), Marketing Director, Development Director, Company Manager, Box Office, Patron Services, Casting Agent, and many others.

There are many cultural centers of traditional Theatre: Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Minneapolis, Seattle, Atlanta, and Louisville to name a few. Non-traditional outlets for Theatre are found in the more encompassing arena of film, television, theme parks, industrial/trade shows, computer Animation, themed entertainment, and education. This is a large and growing industry that can be found in every city. From Las Vegas to Buffalo, Portland Maine to Portland Oregon, there are excellent opportunities in theatre-related fields.
