Education takes place in the classroom, yes— but of course experiential education is just as important.

At Kalamazoo College, we offer that to our students in two primary ways: on-campus and off-campus.

Funding Opportunity

The Vincent Liff Memorial Theatre Fund is a funding opportunity unique to the Theatre Arts Department. If you’re interested in applying, contact Ren.Pruis@kzoo.edu for further information.

Get Involved in Productions!

Festival Playhouse is always looking for K students to fill positions in the department!

No experience required to do ANY of these roles! The skills needed to complete the position will be taught on the job (and are great resume builders!).
