About the Program

The Theater program at the University of Mary forms an ensemble of actors who learn to collaborate and inspire each other to create powerful and personal theater. Our program offers an immersive curriculum, professional training, and performance opportunities that challenge our students to produce theater within the context of a Christian, Catholic, and Benedictine life.
