Opportunities to shine

Our theater program produces three mainstage shows each year, which are open to all students regardless of previous experience.  Our downtown partner, City Lights Theater Company hosts our fall production and provides students the opportunity to perform in a professional theater.

Tech theater & Design

Design, build and operate

Notre Dame's unique technical theater program offers students an opportunity to explore the world behind the scenes by designing and managing the production of the sets, costumes, lighting, sounds, props, and marketing campaigns for our three mainstage shows.


Behind the scenes

In theater, students practice managing their peers, resources, and time, preparing them to be successful leaders in college and beyond. A core team of four students coordinate with faculty to lead each production, but over 15 additional student leaders manage our 100+ person tech theater program.
