Speech and Theater Department
The theater program provides opportunities for students to develop a wide range of communication and theatrical skills. These in turn enrich the student's academic, professional, and cultural life. Emphasis is given to the development of an intellectual and aesthetic appreciation for the human experience. Students may take advantage of these opportunities through enrollment in departmental courses or through participation in the co-curricular theater productions.
Each year the ASU-Beebe Department of Theater presents a series of co-curricular productions in order to enrich the educational and cultural environment of the student. Department productions are selected from a variety of historical periods, theatrical styles, and ideological viewpoints in order to provide our students with the maximum educational opportunities possible. These co-curricular theater productions are educational laboratories. As such, they are designed to enhance student academic growth, artistic expression, and intellectual freedom.
Students are trained to reach high levels of achievement in their disciplines. The theater program provides students with training in both performance and production skills. All students are encouraged to develop an appreciation of the role theater plays in the development of culture.
