EMU Theatre 

EMU Theatre is dedicated to the training of students in the process, exploration, and practical application of theatre arts. We instruct and mentor students in strengthening their artistry and building a solid understanding of and appreciation for the transformative power of theatre. Each student receives academic training and hands-on experience for a career as a theatre professional, educator, and/or student in continuing studies in graduate or professional training programs. Our production season is our students' laboratory. We hope you join us and support them and their artistry.
