What makes the Department of Theatre Arts so special?
What makes the LaGrange College Department of Theatre Arts so special? We offer an exciting, rigorous pre-professional training program that emphasizes two things: the practical aspects of theatre and the importance of process. With the belief that theatre is both an art form and a business, our curriculum provides a strong undergraduate foundation in theatre performance, design, production and literature.

How have LC theatre graduates succeeded professionally?
Nationally and internationally, our Theatre Arts graduates have worked as professional actors, stage managers, producers, technicians and designers at Imagination Stage in Washington, D.C., The Chicago Kids Company, The Arkansas Repertory Theatre, Asolo Repertory Theatre, The Legacy Theater, The Papermill Theatre, TheatreWorks Singapore and The California Theatre Center.

In Atlanta, our graduates have worked at Actor's Express, 7Stages, Horizon Theatre and the Atlanta Center for Puppetry Arts.

Are theatre arts scholarships available?
Several scholarships are awarded annually to those who show incredible growth and promise, including the Evelyn Powell Hoffman Drama Scholarship, awarded each year to talented freshmen. Deserving upperclassmen may receive the prestigious William Hearnburg Endowed Theatre Achievement Scholarship, the Max Estes Drama Scholarship, The Eugene Morris Scholarship or the Mamie Lark Henry Arts Scholarship.
