Theatre Department

Nebraska Wesleyan University Theatre presents more than 40 productions each year. These shows give our students opportunities to act, sing, direct, design and work in many genres. NWU houses three major stages and the region’s largest costume and prop libraries.

Opportunities begin immediately at NWU. First year students are onstage by October. Many begin directing as sophomores. Most theatre majors work at least six shows per year.

Nebraska Wesleyan graduates succeed in professional theatre. Last year, 90% of the Theatre Department’s graduates found theatrical work on and behind major stages from Los Angeles to London, as well as in touring productions, film and TV.
