Produce. Perform. Inspire.
Elevate your performance. Explore your talent. And experience the world of theatre like never before.
Perform with a Purpose
Whether on stage or behind the scenes, prepare for countless careers in the world of theatre. Actor, director, and playwright, of course. But also, drama teacher, professional designer, stage manager, theatre critic, and more.
Theatre is storytelling, and there’s no greater story to tell than God’s story. Elevate your performance and explore your talent with a (B.A) degree in applied theatre, from NGU.
Experience Learning as You Explore Your Craft
Tour, Perform, Minister – Welcome to Act Two
Bible study. Fellowship. And the chance to perform original dramas for local churches and community groups. That’s Act Two – the drama ministry troupe sponsored by Baptist Student Union. All NGU students may audition to join.
In-Class Learning, Meet Real-World Experience
Where better to complete your required theatre internships than one of Greenville’s renowned venues? Options abound at the Applied Theatre Center of Greenville, Warehouse Theatre, Center Stage, and the Greenville Little Theatre (just to name a few!)
Festivals and Competitions
Compete in regional events like the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival. Receive award nominations, professional feedback, and critical acclaim as you gain exposure and expand your network.
National Auditions – Right Here in the Southeast
Earn acting opportunities and internships. Attend masterclasses and workshops. All at the largest gathering of theatre artists in America. It’s the Southeastern Theatre Conference – and it might just launch your theatrical career.
Study Theatre with Clear Direction
Elevate Your Perspective
You’ll also take Chapel every semester, and Cultural Events for the first four semesters. You earn credit through attendance, and each course counts as half a credit. This is the NGU difference, how you find your peak performance and elevate your perspective, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
