As the only theatre in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex celebrating more than fifty-five years of production, we take great pride in our history as well as in our future.
Our alumni can be found working on Broadway as performers & producers, in films and television as actors & art directors, on area stages as award winning performers & designers, and as dedicated educators all over the area. Our current students have opportunities to intern with local theatres and professional organizations, establishing working relationships before graduation.
Our faculty each work professionally in theatre and bring that experience to the classroom, including professional affiliations with Actors Equity, The Dramatists Guild, and USITT. Our professional network is vast and we regularly schedule workshops and master classes with other experts, including actors, casting agents, playwrights and designers.
Our black box space, The Thad Smotherman Theatre, is one of the largest of its kind in the country and features a movable lighting grid system powered by half-ton chain motors. The flexibility of the "Thad" gives our students the opportunity to work in a variety of theatrical configurations including thrust, arena, proscenium and stadium.
You have talent and ambition, and we have scholarships and opportunities. We invite you to spend a day with us, visiting our classes and talking with our students and faculty. Because scholarships are limited, priority consideration is given to those applications received early.
