Message from Ken Elston, Director, School of Theater
Welcome to Theater at Mason, where we stress the ideal that serious practical training and experience, combined with the breadth and vigor of liberal arts study, offer our graduates the best preparation for a life in the theater. Our mission is to use theater as a means of preparing students for a complex and challenging future, through rigorous, concentrated, and individualized training. There is a place for you here, regardless of where your interests may lead you. We hope you will take the time to join us for an open house, campus tour, or performance.
