Theatre students from all disciplines and majors come together in two first-year Theatre Foundation courses. In your first-semester Theatre Making course, you’ll explore the artistic processes of theatre making within the contemporary landscape of the discipline. You’ll be part of a small cohort of students from all backgrounds working together in a collaborative atmosphere. In your second-semester class, Performance, you’ll work with faculty to learn specific performance techniques in voice and movement.
As a design student, you’ll have a chance to crew, hang lights, and build sets and costumes. You’ll crew the Main Stage shows, build puppets and create a spectacle for Manifest, our end-of-the-year celebration. You will not wait for opportunities to get involved. At Columbia, you’ll work on shows the minute you walk through our doors.
