Southeastern welcomes students back for the start of classes this week while we continue to keep all faculty, staff and students who are not yet able to make it to campus in our thoughts as the region works to recover from devastating flooding.
We attempted to reach ALL our students in recent days, but we realize communication has been difficult, if not impossible for some. If you are just now able to see this message, please contact so we can have a better understanding of your status and work with you so you can attain your educational goals.

It is an exciting time for Southeastern Louisiana University's theatre program. Over the past several years, our students and our productions have been recognized among the region's finest through the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival. Our dedicated young performance faculty is comprised of professionals with a wide range of experience including specialization and training in film and media performance, Viewpoints, Meisner technique, Shakespeare and other period performance styles, musical theatre, and improvisation, among others. Students learn firsthand from those who have acted or directed in such venues as The Actors Studio, 13th Street Repertory Theatre, The New School for Drama, Madison Square Garden, The Kennedy Center, Cleveland Playhouse, The Hudson Guild, Cleveland Public Theatre, etc.

All Southeastern Louisiana University theatre productions are built and/or designed by undergraduate students. Our student designers have been recognized for their work at both the state and regional level. Southeastern theatre alumni are currently working for such prestigious theatre/film/television companies as The Blue Man Group, ESPN, Martha Stewart, The New York City Fringe Festival and numerous Off-Broadway and film endeavors.

Southeastern Louisiana University's theatre program is designed to give undergraduate students hands-on experience and the preparation, training and exposure needed to pursue professional careers and/or graduate training in Acting, Design, Technical Theatre, Directing and Playwriting. Our challenging undergraduate program within a liberal arts environment offer students knowledge and appreciation of the performing arts at a consistently recognized level of excellence.
