Message From the Department

Welcome to the Hope College Theatre Department webpage. We are a vibrant and close-knit department with a strong curriculum and production program. Both theatre majors and non-majors participate in all aspects of our work. An outstanding faculty, an excellent facility, strong interdivisional collaboration with the art, dance, and music departments, and exciting internship opportunities in New York City, Chicago, and Philadelphia as well as with the professional Hope Summer Repertory Theatre further mark our department as a special liberal arts program in theatre.
