Theatre and Dance

Welcome to the Department of Theatre and Dance

The world of performing arts has its own unique environment. A performance opens and there is an excitement in the air. A show closes, and for a brief time, the theatre and dance company enters a bitter-sweet sadness. The sets come down, lights are turned off, costumes return to storage. The actors and dancers are left with a bit of a hole, the place where their characters have lived for the past six weeks. We think of the next story, the new lives, the new places and movements that will come to life on the stage in a few short weeks.

As a community of Theatre and Dance artists we cultivate the stewardship of intellect and imagination in a forum for civic dialogue as we seek to understand our calling in Christ.
