Theatre Department

The mission of the Theatre Department is to provide students with rigorous pre-professional theatre training within the context of a traditional liberal arts college education. The degree options offered by the Theatre Department are designed to equip students with the skills required to succeed in the professional theatre, graduate school, and a wide range of vocations.

Each year, 100 percent of Theatre Department students participate as cast or production crew members in at least one departmental production. The E&H Theatre Department stages four main productions encompassing a range of material, including musicals, contemporary plays, classical pieces, and new or experimental works. All shows are directed by E&H faculty, Barter Theatre staff, or guest directors from New York or other metropolitan areas. In addition, up to five student-directed “showcase” productions are produced each semester, offering further opportunities for students to be actively involved in practical production work as actors, directors, designers or technicians.

Music Department

Emory & Henry College Music Department offers a quality music curriculum in combination with a strong foundation in the liberal arts. Classes, ensembles, performances, and private lessons offer musical  experiences for majors and non-majors alike, and a talented and dedicated music faculty ensures personal attention to each individual student’s musical growth. The music department seeks to provide opportunities for students to grow into independent, informed, and creative musicians who will serve as advocates for our art in and out of the music profession. Opportunities to make music on and off campus are available to everyone at E&H.
