Opportunities for involvement with the Theatre Program are endless!  Because we are an undergraduate program, students (both majors and non-majors alike) are encouraged to try a little bit of everything — performance, technical theatre, directing, design, etc. — making the full theatre experience that much more complete.  For hands-on experience in all aspects of production, the UNK Theatre program mounts four mainstage productions, one dance concert, and numerous student-directed pieces each season.  With productions in rehearsal or on stage throughout the academic year, there are always numerous "backstage" opportunities available for theatre technicians, in addition to a wealth of performance opportunities for those who prefer the limelight.

At UNK Theatre, there is a part for EVERYONE!!



We here at the University Theatre at Kearney are cautiously gathering students and audiences together once again to share our passion for the performing arts.   As we continue to navigate these unprecedented times, please know that we are committed to finding ways to bring Theatre and Dance to our stages in a manner that is safe and enjoyable for performers and patrons alike.  We hope you will bear with us as we continue to monitor the ever-changing COVID-19 situation, explore creative performance possibilities, and develop essential protocols.  Your on-going support for the arts at UNK – and throughout Kearney – is greatly appreciated, and we encourage you to check back regularly for any updates we have to share regarding our current season.
