- The Effect, Oct. 12-16
- The Children of the Queen’s Writ, Nov. 16-20

Why study Theatre at TWU?
Master your craft
TWU is one of only five universities in Texas to offer a master’s degree in theatre. And if you seek the convenience and flexibility of online learning, a unique hybrid program established in 2008 is one of only a few in the nation allowing students to earn a Master of Arts in Theatre degree almost entirely online.
Develop lasting friendships
As a TWU theatre student, you will be encouraged to team up with your peers and engage in community service through membership in Alpha Psi Omega, an honorary theatre fraternity on campus. Among their projects, fraternity members help with fundraising for department scholarships and work on an annual holiday gift drive for local families in need.
Kick-start your career
Over the summer, you can learn on the job and network with professionals in your field while completing an apprenticeship or internship with a local theater company. Because TWU has a strong relationship with the local arts community, our students find work at prestigious venues in Denton, Dallas and Fort Worth.

A degree from TWU’s Division of Theatre could lead to Broadway, Hollywood or beyond. The skills acquired with a background in theatre arts could open doors to a surprising number of creative and educational careers, including, but not limited to:
- Stage manager
- Technical director
- Theatre teacher
