Theatre Arts at Cal Lutheran
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.
