I am incredibly grateful for the ways UNW is equipping me as a theatre major. The theatre department puts on many productions every year including mainstage shows in Knight Performance Hall, smaller intimate plays in the black box theatre, one-acts, cabarets, plays, musicals, and more. The professors set an example for how the professional theatre industry works by holding expectations for all students to meet and setting students up to excel by getting them experience in many different sides of the theatre. I constantly learn something new and have met a community of people who never cease to give love and support.
