Theatre programs in liberal arts universities all have much in common. Students enroll in a variety of acting, history, literature, and performance theory classes. In the classroom, students study various areas of theatre design and technology. Almost every theatre program produces plays and musicals. So what makes FHU Theatre different?

The primary difference lies in the exploration of faith and art. Emerging theatre artists learn how their Christian faith strengthens the work and how they can invite God into the rehearsal hall, the scene shop, and the box office. Faith isn't a limitation. It empowers the student artist to speak to a fallen world.

Another importance difference can quickly be seen on the day after a show closes. All theatre majors gather for "debriefing sessions" led by the director of theatre. Students are challenged to think through both the strengths and weaknesses of their work, to learn how to become better artists for future work. The emphasis on theatre production as a learning tool and not an end in itself distinguishes FHU Theatre from programs in many other institutions.

The Freed-Hardeman University Theatre program strives to provide a challenging, creative environment built upon scholarship and practice in which all students may enlarge their artistic potential, and to assemble a community of believer-artists dedicated to impacting their world for Christ.
