About Theatre Studies

Theatre Studies is a subject that is easy to become passionate about.

Theatre provides keys that unlock your understanding about the nature of performance, allowing you access to the tools of a creative performer, as well as the critical and analytical skills to apply to what you see performed.

You will learn from staff who maintain their own passion and enthusiasm for theatre through continued association with professional theatre. They work in the fields of acting, directing, stage design, lighting and sound design, playwriting and translation.

And then there is our Lunchtime Theatre programme at Allen Hall, which is your testing ground as a performer, director, playwright and in all aspects of stagecraft. This weekly performance fixture is unique to Theatre Studies at Otago, and something to celebrate.
