What to expect at Saint Martin's
Saint Martin’s small size enables Theatre Arts faculty to involve students in hands-on experience with all aspects of theatre, including:
- Stage management
- Set design
- Lighting Design
- Costume Design
- Props Design
Students wishing to specialize in a particular area receive intensive training with professional mentors.
The opportunity to experience a hands-on approach to virtually all aspects of theatrical production enables students to truly understand the world of theatre and gain valuable skills they will able to re-purpose in other professional fields they may choose to pursue.
Research and internships
Students often intern with a number of the area’s professional companies, including Harlequin Productions, Theatre Artists Olympia and Taproot Theatre.
Many of our graduates continue to do theatre, either professionally or as an avocation, but many find success in other fields besides the arts, including:
- Social Services
Though it is notoriously difficult to make a living in the performing arts, the skills you develop in our theatre program - communication, aesthetic judgment, emotional understanding, organization ability - will serve you well, whatever your chosen field.
