With an acclaimed faculty boasting a wealth of practical experience, Theatre Siena has become one of the most renowned in the region. While courses such as Modern Dance, Shakespeare and Stage Management are good starting points, there's nothing in acting like first-hand experience.
Students have a chance to participate in Theatre Siena productions in both the fall and winter, with the historic Croswell Opera House in town, there are other opportunities to take the stage.
Francoeur Theater hosts the on-campus shows, but smaller productions are also hosted in the innovative Stubnitz Lab Theater.
One of the programs unique to Siena Heights University is the Creative Stages Child Drama/Children’s Theatre program. It is designed to provide children 4-16 years old with an opportunity to create and take part in improvised creative drama experiences and theatrical productions. Originally started in 1963, the Creative Stages program employs students and faculty of Siena Heights University to work with the children to create improvised plays in workshops held on campus during the fall and winter semesters, and in a summer camp.
Theatre Siena’s production schedule is an ambitious one; presenting five to six main stage productions each academic year, in addition to numerous smaller student-produced projects. For the complete Theatre Siena season schedule, please click here.
