How to Get Involved
There are many ways to get involved in theatre at Seton Hall University.
- Audition for a production
- Volunteer on a production crew
- Join the Theatre Council
- Enroll in Theatre courses
One of the best ways to get involved is to audition for College of Human Development, Culture, and Media and student productions. Auditions are open to all students, regardless of major. Audition notices will be posted on the campus event calendar, the Seton Hall Theatre Webpage, and shu_theatre Instagram account. No experience is necessary and if you don’t get cast in a role you are always welcome to work on the production behind the scenes. Involvement in productions is open to all students.
The Theatre Council, a co-curricular activity of the College of Human Development, Culture, and Media, is always looking for new members, regardless of major. The council plays a significant role in helping to develop theatre at Seton Hall and produces student-directed productions throughout the year.
The College of Human Development, Culture, and Media offers a B.A. in Theatre and Performance, with courses ranging from Acting and Directing to Set Design and Lighting Design to Introduction to the Theatre, the American Stage and the Irish Stage, among others. These courses can serve to introduce or enhance a student's theatrical awareness and are open to all Seton Hall students. Theatre courses increase a student's communication skills, poise, creativity and their understanding of culture and society. The study abroad course, Theatre in London, is a great enhancement to any degree program. You don't have to want to be an actor to study theatre!
There are also many theatre opportunities off campus in New York and New Jersey. Seton Hall students participate in internship programs with The New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, The Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn and many others. The College of Human Development, Culture, and Media offers a wide variety of wonderful internship opportunities locally and in New York.
