The UCSC Theater Arts Department acknowledges unequivocally that Black Lives Matter. We are committed to an anti-racist and decolonial educational ethos that fosters an artistic environment that is accessible to and in solidarity with communities fighting for justice. We acknowledge that the multiplicity and intersectionality of gender, race, cultural affiliation, citizenship status, disability, neurodiversity, sexuality, religion, and economic class is necessary for excellence in our field.

Theater Arts unites experimentation and rigorous analysis in all that we offer. By immersing our students in production, history, theory, artistry, and craft, UCSC Theater Arts helps shape the performance-makers of the future. All students—actors, dancers, directors, technicians, scholars, designers, playwrights, stage managers and dramaturges—test theory on our three stages, learn technique in our studios and shops, and bring passion to their work on- and offstage.
