Theatre


The mission of the LPSS Theatre Program is to foster independent thinking in a creative and challenging environment. Our department provides for the development of imaginative, purposeful, and skilled expression in the theatre, and for students' artistic, intellectual, and personal growth. It is a place where the students can explore, develop and find their imagination, talents and creativity without feeling judged, labeled, or threatened.
