Come to play, stay to work.

If you were an athlete, you would look for a school where you could “play right away.” As you are young artists looking at an art form in which you must play or in fact the art itself wouldn't’t be made, I encourage you to consider our program. You not only can “play right away,” you can come to a place dedicated to seeing that the work of the classroom is regularly applied in the full view of an audience. The added plus for the University of South Alabama, is the location of this university in the civilized and fun environment of Mobile. It is home to the oldest Mardi Gras, and near to the sugar sand of the gulf. It has art galleries, opera companies, and great gumbo.
Consider joining us.

Where have you been! More importantly, where do you want to go? We, at the Department of Dramatic Arts, offer: training, a production arm (Theatre USA), and a place you could choose as both academic and artistic home. We’re home, too, to the oldest Mardi Gras, gumbo, and the gulf of Mexico’s shore. We have alternative degrees: B.A. & B.F.A. We have options of specialties: performance, design/technical, & musical theatre. We offer financial assistantships and scholarships in acting & design to help support the best of you. Mainly, you’ve found a small sample of shows and information and ways to contact us. Stop here, browse, but we all know that the theatre isn't’t “virtual.” Contact us! If you like what you see, arrange to come visit. We just may be exactly what you’ve been looking for. The University of South Alabama provides equal educational opportunities to and is open and accessible to all qualified students without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, sex, or qualified handicap/disability, with respect to all of its programs and activities.
