Theatre Department

The Theatre Department is committed to one core value—our students' intellectual and artistic growth. We believe the theatre is a unique portal that can open the minds of our students to new ways of thinking. The theatre is a place where we can ponder our mortality and celebrate our humanity.

We serve you by teaching and creating theatre as a discipline in the context of a traditional liberal arts institution. You will learn how to think critically and creatively about an important body of material and how to give those thoughts scholarly and artistic expression. All Davidson majors are welcome to audition for our plays and partake in our classes.

Performances

The department steadfastly presents theatre that matters, that continues to resound beyond the performance night. We seek to nurture and develop audience sensibilities and critical skills within the campus community and to bring distinction to the college through the quality of its public programs.

Over the last decade, our productions have won several theatre awards from the Metrolina Theatre Association and Creative Loafing magazine. Should you enjoy the arts we hope you will attend our production season.

Facilities

To support our work, we have two state-of-the-art facilities: Cunningham Theatre Center (renovated in 2008) and Duke Family Performance Hall (built in 2000). Productions are supported by our acting, directing, design, world theatre history, and contemporary drama classes.
