The Theatre and Dance Division of the Elizabethtown College Department of Fine and Performing Arts is a vibrant part of campus life. Our students -- and students from other disciplines -- showcase their talent throughout the year in numerous productions ranging from the contemporary to the classic -- as well as originals. That's right. You'll get to write and direct plays as part of our hands-on curriculum.

Students will be able to study the craft of acting or directing -- or the craft in scenic, lighting, costume or sound design. Our majors can choose to concentrate in performance or theatre technology. We also offer a theatre minor in both concentrations. We also offer courses in dance and are home to the campus's largest student club, the dance group Emotion.

Theatre Day will offer prospective students a unique perspective into the program that shapes Elizabethtown students into professionals both on the stage and behind the scenes.
