Join Our Community of Professional Artists

The UW-Green Bay Theatre and Dance program is a community of professional artists, educators and students. The program offers high-impact learning practices that cultivate creativity, critical thinking, communication skills and collaboration. The program delivers a rigorous academic and problem-focused environment that seeks to produce work that challenges the mind, engages the heart and delights the senses.

Theatre students are encouraged to take advantage of the four mainstage productions offered each year and to become active in the student Alternate Theatre organization that annually creates several productions. An annual season of performances are selected to expose students and audiences to a wide range of theatre genres that include classics, contemporary and new works, musical theatre and plays of relevance to societal and world issues. The Theatre program is continually involved with the Kennedy Center's American Theatre Festival, which aims to identify and promote quality in university theatrical production. Think New York Spring Break Theatre trips and portfolio-building recognition!

The UW-Green Bay campus has excellent facilities for Theatre students to practice their art. This includes the 450-seat University Theatre, an experimental theatre space, acting and dance studios, and scene and costume shops. The University owns the Midwest's crown jewel — the 2,000-seat Weidner Center for the Performing Arts — and its featured spaces including Studio One, used for theatre, dance, and voice classes and the Jean Weidner Studio, a flexible studio performance space solely for Theatre and Music programs.
