About Theater

If you are currently looking for a small, production oriented, exciting theatre program nestled within a great all around liberal arts education then the Theatre program at Union College is for you. Working in a new state of the art Theatre facility, the conservatory trained (Yale, Boston University, University of Connecticut, and Trinity University) and professionally active faculty all strive to teach a worldview of theatre by presenting work from all possible genres and cultures. From William Shakespeare to Sam Shepard and from Pinter to Puppets, the Theatre at Union produces an eclectic body of work designed to challenge the imagination, stimulate artistic curiosity and provide the basis for a rich and varied classroom experience.

Graduates from our program have gone on to further study at some of the premiere theatre schools in the nation (Carnegie Mellon, U.C.L.A. Film School, N.Y.U. etc.), secured production jobs in TV/Film or opted to simply enter the profession. Theatre students are encouraged to study or if possible intern with professional companies during the summer months while enrolled at Union College and in the recent past our students have worked with such companies as The Berkshire Theatre Festival and The Saratoga Shakespeare Company.

We invite you to drop by the Yulman theatre to see a show as our guest or visit a class at any time if you are in the area. We are sure that if you are looking for a place to continue or even begin your journey as a theatre artist and are seeking a small, caring community of student/faculty artists to join you on that journey then Union College is the place.
