Through world-class studio training and rigorous academics, the Theatre & Dance Department aims to produce flexible, collaborative, inspired artist-thinkers, well-equipped to contribute to the greater good.

The Muhlenberg Theatre & Dance experience offers a direct learning partnership among faculty and students—in the classroom, the studio and the performance laboratory. Students are nurtured to succeed and encouraged to take risks. The department offers students daily opportunities to foster the most important goal of the liberal arts experience: education of the whole person.

Theatre & Dance faculty and staff have developed a multi-faceted approach to education that combines exciting creative experience with rigorous professional standards. Students are challenged as artists in the studio and the classroom, working closely with distinguished faculty and internationally recognized guest artists to achieve a conceptual understanding and a practical working knowledge of the performing arts.

    Call Me by Any Other Name… Just as Sweet

    Empie Theatre, Baker Center for the Arts
    thru 10/24

    This explorative new adaptation steps outside of how we typically viewed and experienced the story of Romeo and Juliet. By using inspirations from Dante Alighieri's "Divine Comedy," "Call Me By Any Other Name… Just As Sweet" examines the role of fate and who gets to love, while reimagining the narrative and staking a claim for Queer storytelling.
