Program description

Bachelor of Arts in Theatre

Watch an audience erupt in laughter as you deliver your line perfectly. Write a scene that draws tears from a full house. Create a set that places the viewer in another world. With Hanover's Theatre program, you have the opportunity to be a multifaceted producer/playwright/actor and director.

Four main-stage productions, numerous student written and directed pieces, and hands-on experience will help you discover your talent in the world of the stage. Non-majors receive class credit and are encouraged to participate in productions as well.Hanover's Theatre department, together with its play-production arm, the Hanover College Theatre, will involve and educate you in all aspects of theatre in the context of a liberal arts education. You can:

  • Take courses in everything from acting, directing, design and playwriting, to stage combat, global theatre and theatre management. You can even study-abroad in London and Stratford-on-Avon.
  • Major or minor in theatre, or simply participate in it as extra-curricular activity.
  • Be involved in four to five main stage productions during the season, as well as many additional student-originated shows, including an all-student-run comedy improv troupe.

Why study at Hanover College

Hanover College gives students the best of all worlds. There are renowned professors at the top of their discipline, but classes small enough to get 1:1 interaction and mentoring from those professors.

We are located in a small midwestern area near one of Indiana's most historic small towns (Madison, IN), but less than an hour away from some of the largest and most touristic cities of the Midwest.

We have a one-of-a-kind naturally beautiful campus with over 600 acres of space, hiking trails, over 30 waterfalls, and endless hammocking spots. Hanover is also Indiana's first and oldest private, liberal arts, college. Hanover is also a global institution with about 18 different international partner universities and a variety of study abroad options to participate in during your 4 years here.
