Perform at St. Scholastica

The Theatre program provides opportunities for any student — theatre minors and students majoring in other fields — to develop an appreciation for the aesthetics of theatre. Through classes and performances, students develop responsibility for their own work and experience collaborative art by working with an entire production team.

Course offerings, play selection, and the production process are based in the liberal arts tradition of the College. Students from all disciplines contribute to each play that is produced at St. Scholastica. Students also learn from guest directors and artists, giving them a broad exposure to varying perspectives.

Program Outcomes

Students construct the sets and costumes, manage the box office and house, and perform in the productions. The Program emphasizes the production of scripts with academic value. This combination of work, learning, and self-expression is a unique component of the liberal arts education.

Specifically, students in the program will:

  • Understand and appreciate the major periods of theatre history and dramatic literature.
  • Develop a sense of responsibility for their own performance, as well as for the entire production.
  • Gain skills for use in performance and technical theatre that will allow the student to work in theatre beyond the collegiate environment.
  • Learn to effectively communicate a play to an audience through both performance and technical elements.

Formats and Locations

The Theatre minor is offered in a traditional, on-campus format at our main Duluth campus.
