The Marlboro theater program is about innovation, risk taking, and pushing beyond the boundaries of what has historically been defined as performance.

In the Marlboro College theater program, you are encouraged to find your own unique voice as an artist through engagement with all aspects of theater: writing, directing, acting, designing, production, and history. Students in the theater program often weave multiple interests and passions with their primary theater focus. Former students have successfully linked theater and politics, performance and religion, gender and narratives of identity, and multi-media performance installations. Theater students have opportunities to connect with national and international artists and destinations, engaging in an immersive, interactive theatrical process to examine which stories get told—and why—and how students’ own stories contribute to a larger global community.
