Our theatre department offers a wide variety of courses, both practical and theoretical. Students may begin by taking intro to film or theatre, courses that require viewing and analyzing performances. These can be followed by an array of practicum courses including acting, directing, make-up, oral interpretation of literature, and creative drama for children.
Our instructors bring a wide array of academic credentials and professional theatrical experience into the classroom. Many continue to perform live in the Twin Cities today.
Inver HIlls has its own annual theatrical performances where all are welcome to audition. Former theatre students have gone on to become respected professional actors, designers and theatrical managers in the metro area's theatre community. Opportunities for both the beginner as well as the very experienced give our department an exciting and interconnected atmosphere.
