Center stage or behind the scenes, students in the Ira Brind School of Theater Arts at the University of the Arts collaborate with each other and a cast of exceptional faculty members to create unforgettable experiences for audiences. You'll master techniques and learn a new artistic vocabulary, all in small classes with award-winning working theater professionals. Students perform, design costumes and stage sets, direct, and craft the scripts that actors and designers bring to life.
With more than a dozen productions each year in the University's many professional venues — ranging from a historic 1,800-seat theater to intimate cabaret spaces — and opportunities to work with the outstanding regional theater companies in Philadelphia's thriving cultural community, Brind School students learn to explore, to innovate, to problem-solve and to push the boundaries of their creative expression.
Brind School students can spend a semester abroad through an exchange agreement with Rose Bruford College of Theatre & Performance, London's international drama school, and other programs in the U.K., Australia, Europe and Russia.
