About Theatre

Who We Are

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

Our academic program includes an internship and other professional development so students may 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 college and university theatre. Graduates of our program have gone on to graduate school, teaching or 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 east 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, including our children's production and special classics and musicals.
