Theater Program

Accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre (NAST) & Institutional Members of the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival (KCACTF)



The Sacramento State Theatre BA is committed to intensive training in the areas of Performance, Technical Theatre/Design, Puppetry/Children's Theatre, Multicultural Theatre, Dramatic Literature, History, and Criticism. The program is designed to offer breadth and depth and the faculty and staff, having national and international experience, comprise the Theatre BA.


An extension of our academic program is our excellent season of theatrical productions. Each year we offer four to six major productions and minor productions of one-acts, originals, and other shows, all of which provide an excellent showcase for the students of Theatre at Sacramento State. Physical facilities for these productions include the University Theatre for proscenium productions, the Playwright's Theatre for original and experimental productions, and the Studio Theatre for student-directed productions. Included in the program are African American and Chicano/Latino Theatre productions that make this department unique in the State University System.
