Department of Theatre

The University of Montevallo Theatre program is a student-centered professional training program that prepares students for work in the performing arts industry. We are committed to a liberal arts foundation as an effective means of preparing students who want to pursue theatre as a life’s work. This commitment is reflected in the system of training that stresses the collaborative and interdisciplinary nature of the theatrical performance and production process.

Mission & Vision


The Theatre Department’s mission is to train students for the professional theatre and entertainment industry within the context of a first-rate liberal arts education. We emphasize training the “whole artist” so that students are prepared to pursue a variety of fields that require creative and critical thinking as well as the ability to multi-task and work collaboratively on projects. The department also provides high quality theatre programming for the campus and larger state community including opportunities to see challenging, vibrant works that are new to the state of Alabama and, at times, even the Southeast region.


The Department of Theatre is committed to developing a diverse and inclusive community of artists that are compassionate, well-rounded and who possess a strong professional work ethic and the skills to pursue a career in the 21st century.


University of Montevallo Department of Theatre has received accreditation from National Association of Schools of Theatre.
