With a broad-based liberal arts perspective, the Department of Theatre emphasizes historical, social and theoretical study in the fundamental principles of theatre arts. The theatre major is designed to develop artistic and intellectual potential, facility in problem-solving, and practical application in stage production. The department produces a wide variety of theatre productions each academic year, with auditions open to the entire campus.
Denison's Department of Theatre is celebrating a play with twice the DU spirit. The play is written by Jeff Hatcher '80 and directed by Geoffrey Nelson, visiting instructor of theatre this year at Denison.
