The Theatre Arts Department at Cal Lutheran is dedicated to providing students with both artistic and scholastic foundations to prepare them for a prosperous life and career in the theatrical and multimedia fields. We offer a series of fundamental and advanced courses in theatre along with numerous performance and technical opportunities in our highly regarded Mainstage, Blackbox, and film productions. Students participate in a yearly average of  four major productions, including classics, contemporary pieces, musicals, original films, improvisational theatre, and the student Blackbox series.

Not only do CLU students shine onstage — they're all also busy behind the scenes, taking positions of responsibility with publicity, sound, stage management, production management, and design opportunities including: lights, hair, makeup, costumes, and scenic. Opportunities for our students continue throughout the summer with internship opportunities for technical and performance emphases in both Camp Shakespeare and the Kingsmen Shakespeare Festival, a professional equity theatre company that performs on campus. For more information on Camp Shakespeare and the Kingsmen Shakespeare Festival, visit the website here.

Written by the first woman playwright of the English Restoration, this delightfully witty and farcical comedy gives us the age of the unbridled sexual libertine and the intellectual woman who was his equal. The play will be produced in full, extravagant Restoration style with fashion, intrigues, mistaken identities and misunderstandings. Characters like Lady Knowell and Sir Credulous Easy (whose names give clues to their characters) are sure to create a wildly entertaining period piece for the audience.

Directed by Michael J. Arndt
