Mission Statement:
The mission of the theatre program is to develop human potential, expand knowledge, and enrich cultural understanding and expression through high quality undergraduate and graduate education. Through scholarship/research, service, and production, the theatre program seeks to train future artists, scholars and teachers of theatre, and to inform the non-major, the university at large, and the surrounding community of the value of theatre to individuals and society.

Welcome to KSU Theatre! We hope you will take a few minutes to view the pages of this website to become more familiar with our program. There are numerous links introducing you to the variety of areas of specialization available at KSU Theatre for the undergraduate student pursuing a B.A or B.S. in theatre. We encourage you to contact the faculty in any of the areas that are of interest to you, to seek more information about a particular concentration. You may also contact the Program Director-Theatre, Jennifer Vellenga, at vellenga@ksu.edu, with any general questions you may have about the program.

We hope you will read our alum news page to see what our graduates are up to in their professional and personal lives. We have great alumni who are always willing to assist fellow K-Staters on their career paths. And don't forget to check out our photo gallery, our season of plays, and our facilties. You might also find the FAQ's page of interest. One popular question for instance is, "Do freshman get to work in productions?" The answer is a resounding, "yes, onstage and behind the scenes."

Once you decide that KSU Theatre is the program for you, be sure to apply for a theatre scholarship for freshman and transfer students. These talent-based scholarships are available in all areas of theatre.
