The Department of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies is home to a huge range of activity, year-round, from festivals and performance series to faculty and student sponsored academic events. These events includes conversations, workshops, film screenings, and lectures around current research, ideas and issues in theatre, performance studies and dance.

In addition, concentrators and non-concentrators alike have numerous opportunities to participate in performance projects within the department. Whether you are interested in learning the technical aspects of production or costume design, honing your acting skills, making your acting or directorial debut, improving your public speaking, writing a well developed play, or choreographing a dance piece, we have something for you.

This includes paid positions for undergraduates with our Costume Shop, Production Manager's office, Scene Shop, Design Studio, and Publicity/Box Office/House Management.  Please check the student employment website for current openings with our department.  Please note that graduate students and non-Brown students are not eligible for employment with the department.

Many of the performances and events are ticketed. You can buy tickets for upcoming events here.
