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.
