Department of Theatre Overview

The Bluefield College Department of Theatre prepares artists for a career in the professional theatre, or graduate study in the field in preparation for a career in academic theatre. Courses of study include acting, directing, design, theatre history and survey of dramatic literature, as well as many exciting electives like stage makeup, stage management, and many others.

In addition to academic classes, the theatre department presents five productions a year. It is the faculty's belief that the stage is the ultimate classroom for the theatre artist, and so every student is required to be involved in some aspect of production. When a student graduates from the Bluefield College Theatre Department after four years, they will have had the opportunity to have worked on 20 shows!
