About the Department
The Hunter College Theatre Department offers students the opportunity to study theatre while exploring New York’s vibrant theatre scene. We offer classes in acting, directing, and playwriting and design in addition to theatre history, literature, and theory. We believe that critical thinking and practical skills nourish each other. Our accomplished faculty members bring their professional experience as practitioners and scholars outside the college to the classroom. The Department produces one mainstage and several smaller productions each semester, with students taking part in all areas of performance and production.
