Every year, the Theater and Dance Department produces mainstage works featuring faculty directors and choreographers, guest artists, and Macalester students. Our majors and minors are active in all aspects of production, and are supported by classwork in acting, directing, movement, playwriting, history, theory, design, technical theater, and practice-based research.

We welcome you—students, audiences, and colleagues—to experience the ways that we learn in Theater and Dance: through experiment and play, in classrooms, design labs, rehearsal rooms, and on the main stage. Our work reflects and extends the intellectual engagements at Macalester and in our greater communities; through performance, in theory and in practice, we make our world together.
