Bold Artists Thriving Together
Ohio University’s School of Theater is built around experience, where committed faculty artist mentors encourage the exploration and tenacity that develops bold artists with unique voices. To truly thrive in the theater, one must explore the space, take risks while simultaneously feeling safe, and immerse oneself in the art that happens in front of the curtain and the operations behind it.
