I love theatre because it’s a way to express myself. My favorite part is creating the illusion of the world on the stage.

Break a Leg!

At Concordia, you don’t have to be a theatre major to be part of the theatre productions. Everyone is welcome to try out, for a part on stage or as part of the behind-the-scenes magic.


Concordia’s improvisational theatre group, the IMPROVables, is student-led, and everyone is encouraged to join, whether just at rehearsals, during shows, or for the twice-annual Improvathons, which feature 24 straight hours of improvisational hijinks.

See You On Stage

Concordia’s theatre department hosts two yearly major productions, along with reader’s theatre performances, one act plays, and improvisational events. If you’re not an actor, there are still plenty of parts waiting for you: state manager, director, set design, costumes and makeup, and all the other jobs that have to happen before and during a successful performance.

If you’ve ever thought about being a part of theatre, Concordia is the place to jump in!
