Theatre at Tulane University

“We must all do theatre to find out who we are, and to discover who we could become”

-Augusto Boal

Welcome to the Tulane University Department of Theatre and Dance! We hope to discover what talented artists you are as we seek to discover the world and people around us.

Theatre students at Tulane can expect to study all elements of the stage with classes in acting, dance, costuming, lighting design, set design, playwriting and acting – just to name a few. We seek to create well-rounded theatre practitioners and performers that are ready for the challenges of building a career in live theatre with the creative skills to sustain a lifetime of creative discovery.

Founded in 1937 by theatre's luminary Dr. Monroe Lippman, the theatre department at Tulane University remains seriously dedicated to the art of live dramatic theatre. Our faculty represent professionals with a wide range of experience nationally and internationally. Our acting faculty have specializations that include Suzuki, Shakespeare, film and other media performance, dialects, clowning and improvisation, as well as entrepreneurial and devised theatre.
