Each year, 100% of the 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.
Getting creative during Covid, the Emory & Henry Theatre Department had multiple virtual productions of original pieces written and performed by playwrights in Appalachia.
