Participating in theatre can raise your confidence, organization and relationship skills. The theatre program at Concordia University, Nebraska helps you find your voice, both in and out of the classroom. Theatre majors and non-majors alike are encouraged to try a little bit of everything — performance, technical theatre, directing, design, etc. — making the full theatre experience that much more complete. With productions in rehearsal or on stage throughout the academic year, there are always numerous "backstage" opportunities available for theatre technicians, in addition to a wealth of performance opportunities for those who prefer the limelight.
Behind the Scenes
Concordia’s theatre productions take place on- and off-campus, with dedicated space for rehearsals, set-building and costuming and mainstage performances.
At Concordia, providing financial aid assistance is a top priority, and 100% of our full-time undergraduate students receive some sort of financial aid. In addition to merit- and need-based aid, the Theatre Department also provides talent-based scholarships to students, majors and non-majors, who are interested in theatre.
If you want to go to school for theatre, come to Concordia. You gain such a better understanding of how theatre works.
Concordia University’s Curtain Club is a group for students interested in the dramatic arts. Members of the club are involved in various campus productions, including the two yearly major productions, Readers Theatre and One-Act Plays.
