The JMU School of Theatre and Dance provides students with pre-professional training opportunities as directors, playwrights, designers, actors, technicians and managers. In the Studio Theatre at the Forbes Center, student-produced works comprise the Experimental Theatre Series. In contrast to the faculty and guest-directed shows in the Forbes Center’s larger Mainstage Theatre, the Studio Theatre offers students a flexible, state-of-the-art theatre “laboratory” in which to develop their own work. In these student directed, designed, and acted performances, students explore the possibilities of staging and, occasionally, non-traditional approaches and scripts. Audiences are invited to come and experience the new and often thought-provoking work of tomorrow’s theatre professionals.
