We are devoted to cultivating actors for the 21st Century through in-depth training that INSPIRES, challenges and thrills. We believe in a standard of perfection that can only be reached through DISCIPLINE, continual risk-taking, and
a conviction that failure is always an option. With that in mind, we provide daily practical experience in the making of theater. Utilize your senses and your IMAGINATION as your most powerful resources. Come work hard and PLAY HARD with Ohio University Theater.
