About Theatre

Who We Are


FSU Theatre is home to a BA in Theatre, with minor offerings in Theatre, Dance, & Telecommunications. We produce an annual season of several mainstage shows, including children's drama, musical theatre, African American drama, and 24 Hour Theatre Project. Our program is led by world-class faculty with strong ties to the professional field.

The Diviners at FSU

Our academic program includes an internship and other professional development for students so that they can anticipate working in the field upon graduation. Many of our productions are part of the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, which showcases work from the nation's leading theatres in colleges and universities.

Graduates of our program have gone on to graduate school and professional work in the field.


Where We Work

Most FSU Theatre productions take place in our 200-seat Butler Theater in the heart of the FSU campus. Equipped with state of the art lighting and sound technology and a fully furnished scene shop, Butler Theater is home to most of our mainstage shows and many of our classes.

We occasionally produce shows in FSU's 1100-seat Seabrook Auditorium.
