What better starting place for your theatre career than the place that draws on the Jesuit legacy that began the careers of legendary dramatists like Molière, Voltaire and Calderón de la Barca? Loyola New Orleans has the added benefit of being in a highly creative, arts-focused community with a wide range of performing opportunities. Sure, you’ll take a comprehensive theatre curriculum including performance skills, dramatic literature, history and theory, theatre management, theatrical technology, and design. But you’ll also get to step into the spotlight or behind the stage.
Once you’ve auditioned and been accepted, you may find yourself honing your craft at a local theatre through an internship or studying abroad. You’ll have exposure to casting directors, production managers and other theatre professionals through student forums.
