What career enables professionals to amuse, surprise, enlighten, entertain, educate, and stir emotions? A career in theatre — whether in acting, directing, or designing— offers professionals a multitude of opportunities to display unique talents. Students who undertake serious theatre training quickly learn that theatre is a challenging discipline. At IPFW, students study and work one-on-one with dedicated and professionally active faculty. Unlike most larger universities, at IPFW you’ll have opportunities to act, direct, and/or design in major productions during your entire four-year course of study, starting with your freshman year.
