Theatre Simpson Mission Statement
The department views theatre as an avenue within a liberal arts education for personal discovery, self-discipline, creative expression and artistic excellence. Based on these principles, Theatre Simpson is a dynamic community that embraces the mission of the college and encourages students to participate in a wide range of experiences.
Departmental courses and projects provide students with cultural and artistic experiences and develop their abilities to observe, reflect, think critically and express themselves. Theatre students have the opportunity to apply these skills to coursework, departmental productions and experiences off-campus and are encouraged to take responsibility for their education and to develop their leadership skills.
In an atmosphere of cooperation and respect for the individual, students are challenged to achieve academic, aesthetic, and production standards of quality. Through innovative processes that embrace the notion of collaboration, the department encourages students to aspire to excellence.
