Theatre weaves together all of God’s many gifts, magnifying the aspirations of humankind.

The goal of Montreat College’s Theatre Program is to provide students with a solid foundation for future theatre professionals. Our enriched curriculum includes the art, craft, performance, direction, and management of theatre for application in many possible careers and ministries. We also help our students gain appropriate knowledge of the artistic, business, spiritual, and humanitarian aspects of theatre.

The skills that theatre majors at Montreat College receive–communication, teamwork, expression, confidence—also have useful applications in a whole spectrum of careers.
