Department of Theatre

The Department of Theatre faculty at Ohio State Lima are renowned for their research abroad and offer a wide variety of courses that prepare students for careers in the performing arts and beyond. Theatre courses are open to all disciplines and provide a space for students to find their voice.

There are two productions in an academic year; every autumn celebrates the Theatre for Young Audiences program, which nearly 2,000 children from local elementary schools attend –while every spring we alternate mounting a musical or a straight play. There are plenty of opportunities with open auditions for each production and myriad backstage experiences to gain both on campus and in the city. Attend an audition, check out a class, send us an email, and find your second family!
