The Theatre minor is an 18-hour program.

Students minoring in theatre at Winthrop University will experience a program that encourages a breadth of knowledge that includes production work as well as performance. All theatre majors have opportunities to assume artistic leadership roles during their academic careers in the department. Advanced students take on lead acting roles, design duties, stage management positions, technical direction responsibilities, box office management, direction, and more. Very few undergraduate programs offer these many opportunities for students to perform, design, direct, choreograph, stage manage, and run productions.

Each year, the department presents three theatre main stage productions and as many as six studio dance/theatre productions and other informal performances.



Our theatre faculty members have real-world experience in performance and technical theatre and use that experience to ensure students receive a well-rounded education in theatre, preparing them for life after college. Through countless opportunities for interaction both inside and outside the classroom, strong bonds and mentorships are created between faculty and student.
