Theatre Mission Statement
The Theatre program's mission is to serve as an artistic, intellectual, and multi-cultural resource for the communities and institutions of southeast North Carolina and beyond. As an educational center, the student's talents will be continually developed through performance and production techniques based on a comprehensive education in the history, theory, and craft of theater. We seek to produce graduates who value artistic collaboration and will be leaders in their field and its advocate.
