A unique, hands-on theatre experience where students learn by doing.

Our dedicated core and elective curriculum allow students of theatre to focus on their specific area of interest, with the opportunity to branch out and gain valuable experience across a range of theatrical areas. At SUNY Oswego Theatre, we place our students at the center of the creative experience. With an active student body, a first-rate group of faculty and professional staff, and a world-class technology range, SUNY Oswego offers opportunities to contribute throughout your degree program.

As a member of the School of Communication, Media and the Arts (SCMA), SUNY Oswego Theatre also encourages inter-disciplinary collaboration and interaction. Students have the opportunity to perform in one of our many on-campus locations, which includes black box studio spaces and the recently renovated Waterman Theatre, a 426-seat proscenium stage. Programming includes the classical canon, modern American works, musical theatre, and new plays, while each season is highlighted by a Student Honors Production which is an entirely student-driven mainstage performance mentored by department professionals.
