Welcome to the Department of Theatre Arts at the University of the Incarnate Word.  We invite you to explore this site to learn more about our program and its productions.

STUDY THEATRE AT THE WORD

UIW offers a BA in Theatre Arts.  If you’re considering pursuit of a BA in Theatre, we encourage you to visit our campus, attend classes, meet Theatre students and faculty, and experience one of our rehearsals or performances.  At UIW, Theatre Arts majors get hands-on opportunities to apply concepts and methods learned in coursework and enjoy individualized attention from their professors.

MAKE THEATRE AT THE WORD

We typically produce four plays a year and our students not only act in those productions, but also take on leadership roles in creating each production’s costumes, scenery, lighting and sound.

We are an inclusive group and any member of the UIW community willing to commit the time to rehearsals and performances can audition for or work backstage on our productions.

ENJOY THEATRE AT THE WORD

UIW students, faculty, and staff receive one FREE ticket when they present a valid University ID card, and can purchase additional tickets at a discounted rate.  But be sure to make reservations early, as we often sell out!
