Welcome to CSUF Theatre

•  College of the Arts Contacts

The Department of Theatre & Dance at California State University, Fullerton are fully committed to the health and well-being of every student in our program, as well as to the quality and outcomes of our instruction and curriculum. We believe that every one of our students is an important member of the Titan Family, and we strive to empower our them while also acting for the greater good of every citizen, regionally and nationally.

The Department of Theatre & Dance is ready to meet the challenges, and we remain committed to offering innovative academic solutions and unique co-curricular experiences for our students. Although many theatre and dance courses require students to interact and collaborate in close proximity, our faculty have created creative and dynamic ways to engage learning on all platforms by incorporating new technologies into their curriculum while also being mindful of the potential need for continued social distancing practices in accordance with health and safety guidelines set by the Chancellor's office and CSUF President Fram Virjee.

As Titans of the Arts, we know the importance of flexibility, creative thinking, entrepreneurialism and, above all, resiliency. We are all in this together, and we are 100% committed to you and your educational goals during this period of uncertainty. You are the actors, designers, performers, dancers, choreographers, and more who will shape the arts of tomorrow in ways we have yet to imagine. Move forward towards your future this fall and join us for a semester of possibility.

“The students appreciate that I am a working actress because I share my mistakes with them and give advice on how to fix it. You show them the path to success — things they should do, how to practice their craft, how to concentrate, how to rest between takes — everything I teach them prepares them for the profession.”
