From the moment you set foot on campus you will find yourself immersed
in activity. Our students learn by working in everything from the ticket
office to onstage. And you won’t need to wait until you are a junior
or senior to have an important role in one of our plays. With three major
performances yearly—including a comedy, drama and musical—and
smaller student-directed studio classics, there are ample chances for you
to gain hands-on experience. We even offer a light-hearted Summer Dessert
Theatre featuring the writing of Bethel College professor Dr. Earl Reimer.
All of our productions are well attended and faithfully supported by both
campus and community members.
