UMD Department of Theatre

Auditions are open to all students regardless of major. Casting decisions are made on the basis of selecting a performer who would best bring a role to life on the stage.

Future Students


Our students receive an intensive education and find their opportunities expanded upon after graduation, moving with ease into recognized graduate programs and professional theatre. Advanced students at UMD may take advantage of excellent faculty reputation and connections by pursuing internships in professional theaters across the country.

We pride ourselves as much in advisement of our student artists, as we do in the artistic merit of our productions; which has given us an excellent reputation.

Our limited class sizes, regular evaluations and individual advisement processes provide a high quality of learning.
