You love to tell stories, to connect to audiences, to collaborate with others to create something that impacts the heart and the mind. You’ll do that and more as a student in the theatre department at Palm Beach Atlantic University.
PBA students perform on stage in
"The Dining Room."
As a student in PBA’s theatre department, you may choose from the following programs:
PBA recently acquired and renovated a nearly 12,000-square-foot, two-story building on Fern Street into a “black box” theatre. The facility, called the Fern Street Theatre, houses offices, classrooms,and performance space. It will help elevate students like you to the next level of skill and performance.
You’ll learn from professors who have earned degrees from some of the top fine arts programs in the world. One of our professors has toured with the Royal New Zealand Ballet and served as artistic director of the Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival. And another has done commercial work for Humana, Papa John’s Pizza, National City Car Rental and McDonald’s.
Each year you may participate in about a half-dozen productions — ranging from Shakespeare to children’s theatre. Because we’re an undergraduate-only school, you won’t be competing with graduate students for a shot at performance opportunities. You’ll be considered for performances from your very first year.
