Welcome from Carl Forsman, Dean of Drama

The theater is a rare place in our culture, where we come together to listen, question, and celebrate. In an increasingly disjointed world, we believe the theater remains a place of the greatest cultural and civic importance. The School of Drama teaches young actors and directors the skills required to join an industry full of dreamers who believe, as we do, that our stories define and shape us. We seek to nurture the creative impulse, engage the imagination, and instill the discipline required to join this demanding and rewarding profession.
