Faculty and Staff

Valpo’s theatre department faculty have a serious interest in play.

They teach a breadth of disciplines — directing, design, performance, costume and makeup, scenery and lighting, and dance — and emphasize the critical role of each of these disciplines to the process of theatre-making. Through their courses and the performances they supervise, they create a collaborative environment for the study and practice of theatre.
