The Theatre and Dance department is thankful for all the contributions the Hamline community has made to continue Hamline's theatrical legacy.
For more than 75 years, theatre has been a vital part of the academic life and mission of Hamline University. The official start of the program was in 1930 when Miss Anne Simley prepared with a $150 budget and a small platform stage on the third floor of a Science Hall and began a regular series of performances and classes.
Today our facilities include a modern theatre, a black box space, and a small TV studio. While our productions, classes, and facilities have changed over the years, the core of the program has remained consistent. Through mentoring relationships, the faculty seek to provide the best possible training so that performance artists, designers, and technicians can achieve their full potential.
Our focus is on shared learning, so every show is created by a mixed group of faculty and students. Our auditions also welcome students from the entire Hamline community. Our classes are small, the feedback is direct, and the learning is hands-on.
Hamline University is fortunately situated in the center of one of the strongest regional theatre communities in the nation. Guest artists are a feature of each season and many of our classes are enriched by presentations and special workshops lead by professionals from the local theatre community.
