Through a synthesis of body, mind and spirit, theatre students engage great works of dramatic literature both in the classroom and in production. The curriculum includes performance, design and technology, theatre history and literature, movement, and community engagement.

The Pomona College Department of Theatre and Dance serves as the theatre program for all five undergraduate Claremont Colleges, presenting four major productions and a dance concert each year in the modern Seaver Theatre Complex.

Students from all The Claremont Colleges, majors and non-majors alike, serve as performers and production personnel. The department also co-sponsors a dynamic season of student-generated productions.

As majors and minors, or as interested students, you’ll devise creative solutions to complex problems, and develop interpersonal skills and savvy inherent in the collaborative artistic process—qualities that prepare you for a wide range of careers, as well as further study on either the graduate or professional levels.

Many department graduates have become successful members of the professional community as actors, dancers, designers and technicians, producers, writers, dramaturgs, teachers and administrators.
