Mission Statement

The theatre program at Seattle University offers a rigorous and comprehensive theatre-making experience within the framework of a broad Jesuit liberal arts education. Students engage in an immersive theatre environment that instills a deep exploration of collaborative and socially responsive live performance. Our mission is to train a versatile theatre artist who brings intellectual curiosity and passion to their work, their life, and the world at large.
