The Theatre Department features a sequential curriculum that allows students to investigate the social and historical context in which they live, form aesthetic judgments, and develop the discipline of the artist. The ultimate goal is to promote appreciation of the art, as well as a more sensitive and reflective understanding of the human condition.
Patriot Theatre Company’s mission is to activate passion, inspire excellence, and cultivate mindful citizens in an inclusive community of well-rounded theatre artists engaging in diverse stories.
