Why choose theatre at North Central College?
You’ll study with faculty who include accomplished actors working in major Chicago venues. These professor/performers will share their experiences—as well as their professional connections—with you. And because North Central has huge opportunities but small classes, you’ll have plenty of chances to act, sing and dance; direct shows; master lighting design and other technical crafts; and even write and produce your own plays and musicals. Maybe you'll choose to concentrate your studies in Devising, Dramaturgy, and Community Engagement. Whether you want to shine onstage or backstage, North Central is the place to be.
You can also:
- Attend workshops and master classes with luminaries like Jane Alderman, Matt Miller, Stephen Louis Grush and Sheri Sanders.
- Concentrate in performance, design, technical theatre, directing, or play creation.
- Audition for well-known agents and casting directors (including Paskal Rudnicke Casting, Claire Simon Casting and Stewart Talent) as part of the Senior Showcase.
- Direct a show of your choice in our state-of-the-art facilities as part of our Student Director Series.
