Our Mission

Consistent with the mission of the University and the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Theatre is dedicated to providing students with a strong foundation in Theatre based on mastering basic concepts of dramatic literature, performance, history, design and criticism as well as the technical skills to produce theatre. Studying Theatre at Washburn is theoretical, practical and experiential. Public performances are offered by the department in the Andrew J. and Georgia Neese Gray Theatre throughout the year, affording students experience in Theatre practice. As one of the University’s “public faces”, the University Theatre is a cultural resource provided to the citizens of Washburn and the Topeka community.
