We are a community of artists, scholars, choreographers, designers, technicians, writers, and critics. Our goal is to nurture artist-scholars who are well read in dramatic literature, who understand the social and historical contexts of that literature, who appreciate contemporary performance and dance, who think critically, and who translate this knowledge into compelling artistic choices on stage. Fir Acres Theatre hums with activity and creativity from the first morning classes to rehearsals late into the evening. From department mainstage productions to dance concerts to student-driven festivals, our students have many opportunities to create performance and put theory into practice.

The Lewis & Clark Theatre Department production program is dedicated to nurturing a diverse and inclusive artistic and scholarly community. The selection of plays for our season our productions include new works, as well as notable contemporary, modern, and classical plays. The Department is committed to choosing material that represents the diversity of our community. Students are encouraged to participate in all aspects of the program from production to performance, regardless of ethnicity, race, religion, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality, socio-economic status, or ability. All plays we produce are open to all members of the Lewis & Clark community and we practice a nontraditional, identity-concious casting policy, which takes into consideration the role of race, ethnicity, gender and class in the stories that we tell.

  • I landed the role of the Emcee for our hybrid production of Cabaret, our first-ever musical done in two theatre spaces (in order to adhere to COVID capacity guidelines) and sung completely in plexiglass boxes . . . I was lucky enough to be in an ingeniously designed “cage” on wheels!

  • Creative writing has always been a source of joy in my life. Both of my majors (theatre and English) are based in stories, so learning how to write a good story will contribute well to the academic disciplines I’m invested in.
