Theater Faculty

Our faculty provide comprehensive training in all the professions of Theater, from Playwriting and Acting to Costume Design and Directing. They offer as well a study of theater's 2,500-year history and literature. Students engage in the presentation of dramatic work in a community where creativity and critical thought combine in the exploration of the artistic and intellectual challenges inherent in the making of theater.

UCLA Theater has some of the most distinguished faculty and visiting artists in the world. With this professional training, students are following in the footsteps of our illustrious alumni.
