The University of Southern Indiana's Performing Arts Department provides the breadth of a Liberal Arts education while allowing students to pursue professional training in performance, as well as design and theatre technologies.
USI Performing Arts offers an educational experience few undergraduate programs can match. Led by a faculty with significant and ongoing professional experience, many students earn the unique opportunity to work with professional artists through a direct relationship with New Harmony Theatre, a nationally-respected regional Equity theatre. Our students have gone on to train at some of the most prestigious graduate and internship programs in the country.
USI Theatre's season includes up to four full-scale productions annually, providing opportunities for students to apply classroom knowledge on stage or behind the scenes as early as their freshman year.
Coming fall 2014
USI's new 299-seat Teaching Theatre will open in fall 2014, supported by a state-of-the-art design studio and all new production shops. A new 24-hour theatre design lab allows students to work on production design at any hour. Learn more about theatre facilities at USI.
Music programs at USI offers students throughout the University the opportunity to develop their musicianship through performance and study. Programs offer valuable experiences for performing arts students eager to build their musical credentials within the Theatre major.
USI music ensembles - the Chamber Choir, the Women's Choir, and the Jazz Band - maintain a performance calendar independent from that of the USI Theatre.
