The minor in theatre at Illinois State University allows students who may have a passion for the stage, show production, or simply theatre in general to supplement their major through taking classes in the School of Theatre and Dance.

Why Study Theatre?

Theatre is performed everywhere – on Broadway in New York City, in shows that travel around the country, in professional regional theaters in large cities, in community theaters in small towns, in school or even in the streets. People who have trained in theatre may also have the opportunity to work in movies and on television. There are additional professional jobs beyond being an actor; usually a theatre or movie production consists of a few actors and many backstage production personnel. A theatre minor provides the background for all such jobs.
