Mission Statement: We are a Christ-centered theatre program that challenges students to develop superior artistic skills in order to serve others in the areas of ministry, education and professional theatre.
Theatre at Harding University is about creating a collaborative community on an artistic mission. The art of theatre integrates the fine arts, the humanities and the performing arts into one immersive experience for all of its participants. The purpose of the Theatre Department is to develop Christian artists into proficient theatre practitioners, educators and advocates. Students are guided in this collaboration by a talented faculty and staff who strive to model Christian values and vision in the creative process, in scholarship, in mentoring and in service.
