The Theatre Performance POE
Juniata’s Theatre Performance POE, offers a conservatory-style preparation for the actor in the larger context of Juniata’s liberal arts environment. In addition to immersion in technical skills training, theatre history, studio acting courses and productions which focus on classical and contemporary plays, Juniata Theatre is also an incubator for new plays and movement theatre pieces. Unlike most university theatre departments with a large stable of professors, our program has a small, permanent faculty of two, which is supplemented and enhanced by a diverse cadre of professional teaching artists.
Juniata Visiting Artists Collective
The Juniata Visiting Artists Collective is dedicated to in-depth training for our students in various skills over the course of four years, and mentorship of student-driven, new works of theatre. This dual inside-out/outside-in approach exposes our students to industry leaders, methods, and approaches, ensures that we stay abreast of current industry trends and exposes students to professional opportunities and connections they would never otherwise get. Theatre students at Juniata graduate empowered with the skills and connections to successfully audition for any show or graduate program, to engage the industry with confidence, and to boldly create their own work.
