Theatre & Drama Courses

Bring your theatrical dreams to life.


Get back into the theatre! Many of us participate in drama in high school (the performance kind), but we feel there aren’t opportunities once we are in college. Our theatre and drama courses range from set design to costume design and from Asian Performance to Hamilton. Even if you’re not interested in direct performance participation, we still believe that theatrical skills have a lot to offer. Here are a few courses that anyone could benefit from:

For those students studying with us in face-to-face courses, you will be able to take full advantage of the beautiful Madison summertime. Wherever you are this summer, you have a space to bring your dreams to life with the UW-Madison Theatre and Drama Department.
