As a member of the Seton Hill's Theatre Department, you will still gain valuable experience in all aspects of the performing arts through:
- three full-length productions, two dance concerts and a number of studio productions each year
- the opportunity to work in our costume and design shops, as well as the box office
- study in our state-of-the-art facilities, including the Arts Center and Performing Arts Center
- all of the benefits of our Apple Distinguished School, including a MacBook Air laptop for all full-time freshmen
Students interested in majoring in Theatre Arts at Seton Hill University are not required to complete an audition or portfolio review in order to be accepted into the program. However, students wishing to compete for scholarships within the School of Visual and Performing Arts must complete one or the other in order to be considered.
Performance & Production Opportunities
All productions offer an array of performance and technical opportunities. Seton Hill University's Performing Arts Center houses the William Granger Ryan Theatre and the Ridge Performance Studio, where performances and shorter works are presented throughout the academic year. First-year students are encouraged to get involved with a production from their very first week here on the Hill.
