Theatre & Performance

With courage & support, unleash the most expressive you. 

  • Immerse yourself in performance early and often. As a theatre or dance student at Nazareth, you’ll audition for main stage productions beginning your first year and collaborate in producing musicals, dramas, comedies, classics, and dance concerts performed in world-class venues like our Callahan Theatre.
  • Transformative faculty-student mentoring, small class sizes, workshops with visiting artists, and exclusive connections with theatres, production companies, and renowned professionals make our programs among the most personalized and effective.
  • Options include a semester at the Tepper program in New York City; training with acting and musical theatre professionals on London's West End through short-term study abroad with Naz faculty; and studying dance abroad in Italy, Argentina, Ireland, Ghana, Costa Rica, or the Philippines.
