Theatre Degrees

The Theatre program at Seattle University offers a conservatory style experience within the framework of a broad based Jesuit liberal arts education. Students are thrown into an immersive theatre experience that encourages a larger exploration of what it means to make theatre in the world today.

Tour to the Merc Playhouse

Seattle U Theatre tours to The Merc Playhouse in Twisp, WA every year. Through this outreach program, we bring American and world classics (The Imaginary Invalid by Moliere, Picnic by Inge, Women of Troy and Euripides, The Tempest by Shakespeare) to an underserved community. Additionally, our students learn the rudiments and joys of touring and empower themselves for a succssful future of theatre making in all types of communities, not just the big city.
