Program Overview Theatre Arts Furman University

By providing extensive onstage and offstage training, our ambitious program develops well-rounded artists who are prepared for any role. We produce three mainstage performances each year to which the entire campus and Greenville community are invited. Our program ranges from modern, classical, comedy, and tragedy, and we believe we do some of the best work in South Carolina. Our students collaborate with faculty and get involved in every aspect of the production, from costumes, set design and promotion to lighting and sound.
