Theatre Department

Mission Statement

The Theatre Department is committed to cultural and artistic diversity in its broadest sense. We foster innovative thinking, dynamic collaboration, and both scholarly and artistic achievement through a varied and balanced study of history, theory, and application within the local, national, and global community.

The Oswego State Theatre Department prepares students for a career in the theatre and its related fields through a combination of academic knowledge and production experience. We produce multiple mainstage productions (plays, musicals, readings, and student-directed works) during the academic year staged in Waterman Theatre and in our flexible lab spaces.
