The Theatre Department at Centenary provides a unique learn-by-doing educational experience where you will become part of a vibrant equity theatre company, the Centenary Stage Company (CSC).
As part of CSC you will earn Equity Membership Candidate (EMC) points towards membership in Actors Equity, the professional union for actors. Unlike many professional theatres located on college and university campuses, Centenary students play an active and vital role in all professional productions from cast to crew, participating in all facets of production.
Students are provided with valuable networking opportunities with artists who come to work with CSC throughout the year, from directors to actors and designers. These opportunities allow you to jump start your career while making important personal connections with working professionals.
In addition, we have a Theatre for Young Audience touring program, made up exclusively of Centenary theatre students and alums who travel throughout the country during the academic year presenting a variety of educational theatre productions for school audiences.
During the academic year there are also our in-house student productions presented by the NextSTAGE Rep, running the gamut from Shakespeare to musicals and cutting edge drama, all performed and presented by students in the program.
