Theatre Program

​Theatre Program

​​​​​​​​​The theatre program at Grove City College is an extracurricular arm of the Department of English.  Students interested in the performing arts can earn a minor in theatre by taking 24 credits in performance, dramatic literature and technical theatre. Students may also earn one credit of Theatre Practicum every semester by working on college productions. 
 
Tau Alpha Pi (TAP) is the theatre honorary at Grove City College. Students who have accumulated enough theatre experience and have demonstrated a consistently high level of contribution to the theatre program may be elected.
 

Every academic year we stage the following events:
     • Fall TAP One-Act Play Festival (student-directed)
     • Fall Mainstage Production (faculty-directed)
     • Orchesis Dance Concert (student-choreographed)
     • Spring Mainstage Production (faculty-directed)
     • Children’s Theatre (student-directed)
     • Spring TAP One-Act Play Festival (student-directed)

All Grove City College students, regardless of major, are welcome to audition for our theatre productions and work on any of our many production crews.
