A MESSAGE FROM THE THEATRE CHAIR
- Lois Hunter
LACHSA theatre students graduate not only as trained actors with artistic integrity and shared standards of excellence, but critical thinkers, arts leaders and advocates for the theatre arts. The four-year course of study provides a multi-dimensional experience that captures the breath and depth of theatre as an art form and exposes students to historical, contemporary, social, multicultural, and cutting-edge concepts in theatre. Students are actively involved as creators and evaluators of theatre arts.
