The Department of Theatre & Performance Studies (“TPS”) offers a Bachelor of Arts with four concentrations: acting, performance studies (including storytelling, performance art, directing, adaptation of texts for the stage, and dramaturgy), musical theatre, and design/technology. It is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre.
Students perform in plays, musicals, poetry performances, adaptations of classic literature, storytelling, improv comedy, and new works. Performances are held on two campus stages: a black box space and a 315-seat theater. The KSU Tellers, a storytelling ensemble, performs at schools and professional events like the Atlanta Fringe Festival. The TPS Improv Ensemble K.I.S.S. performs in schools and professional venues around the metro area.
Education abroad experiences include the Gaiety School of Acting, the National Theatre School of Ireland, The International Festival of University Theatre in Casablanca, Morocco, and programs in London, Paris, and Montepulciano, Italy.
