Theatre - Meeting Signpost

Theatre's Mission

The Fordham Theatre Program trains artists to develop and sustain their practice through mentored exploration of performance, design and production, playwriting, and directing.

Learn by doing: our experiential curriculum offers twenty studio and four mainstage production opportunities each year. Value artistic freedom: students create and produce the entire studio season of new and established works. Prioritize your process: only a sustained and focused effort reveals the full potential of the final product. Exercise risk: we nurture the impulse to Go All In, with regards to creativity in the production process. Collaborate to create: our majors launch their training with a year-long class in collaborative techniques. Cultivate diverse aesthetics: immersion into classical and experimental work, from an array of eras and cultures, is infused in training and academic study, on and off the stage. Produce with the professional world: we co-produce with leading NYC theatre companies on our mainstage.

Who are we seeking? Curious, diverse, risk-takers, motivated by an eclectic community of artists. Who do we train? The Fordham Theatre Program graduates skilled, adaptable, and empowered creators who meet and exceed the demands of a dynamic, evolving field.

Ignite your vision. Begin your practice.
