Welcome to Harding University Theatre. The HU Theatre experience provides a challenging, yet rewarding opportunity for students to develop their theatre knowledge and skills in an environment of believers. Students are pushed to find their potential in a number of artistic aspects of theater, while supported and encouraged to remember that our dedication to Christ is our number one concern.

Throughout the course of a student's time at Harding, they will have the opportunity to experience a number of diverse theatrical productions. Students are involved in everything from musical theatre to original musical revues; from classic drama to modern comedies. Faculty directed shows provide the opportunity for students to receive performance and technical experience under the guidance of seasoned educators who seek to challenge the students' skills. Student directed productions provide the experience of organizing a production as well as communicating and working with peer groups.

The majority of candidates will visit during the Spring Sing weekend that is held on Easter weekend each year. If a student is unable to attend the events of this weekend, alternative opportunities to apply can be made available.
