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.
