Faculty
The Department of Theatre has a strong faculty who are committed to professional training coupled with the academic study of theatre. Along with our full-time professors, we partner with many professional theatres in the city and hire working actors, directors and technical theatre designers and technicians to teach and/or direct shows. Our unique partnership with Kansas City’s Theatre for Young America allows our students to get professional stage time and design/technical experience before they graduate.
