George Fox University Theatre

The University Theatre is dedicated to cultivating artistic integrity in its students and its programs as we explore the craft of theatre in a Christ-centered environment. Our mission is to offer a safe, disciplined, and nurturing theatre program that prepares artists to make meaningful contributions to our world.

Theatre at George Fox University incorporates more than just acting – it is viewed as a form of communication with significant intellectual, social, moral and spiritual values for both participant and audience.

We offer a bachelor of arts degree in theatre with concentrations in acting/directing and design/technology. Each concentration features a balance between theory and performance and requires students to apply their knowledge through laboratory classes in conjunction with the university theatre’s main-stage season.

The theatre major prepares students to enter the competitive field of theatre as actors, directors, designers, technicians and managers. Ultimately, our goal is to offer a program that prepares artists to make meaningful contributions to our world.
