The Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Performance is one of several theatre degrees offered at Young Harris College. While focusing on making the actor’s voice and body into a well-crafted artistic instrument, students will also learn the basics of stagecraft, design, dramatic literature and theatre history. 

Bachelor of Arts degrees in the Department of Theatre are all built on the same liberal arts core and are specifically designed to develop working artists, not only with the skills to excel at their art, but also the industry knowledge required to become successful in a very competitive field.

What classes will you take?

  • A diverse set of classes in the liberal arts core
  • Dramatic Literature
  • Major courses including:
    • Acting I – IV
    • Movement
    • Voice and Diction

What can you do with a theatre performance major?

A degree in Theatre Performance prepares you for a range of graduate school and career options, and the vast majority of our majors become paid working actors or continue on to graduate study in performance within 12 months of graduation. Our department’s placement rate upon graduation is more than five times the average of other institutions’ theatre programs.

For the 2019-2020 season, Theatre Young Harris will present: Goloshes of Fortune, First Lady Suite, Two Rooms, Valentine's Day Cabaret, Little Shop of Horrors, 21A and Richard III.
