The mission of the department of theatre and dance is to provide the first two years of baccalaureate coursework and production opportunities for the theatre and/or dance major; to provide cultural and artistic resources and opportunities to the general student body of Casper College; and to stimulate and be prominent in the intellectual and cultural life of the Casper community.
The curriculum is designed to provide a full range of classroom study and practical experience for the theatre and/or dance major, while allowing ample opportunity for participation in all classes and productions by general education students. Consistent with the ideal of a liberal arts education, the curriculum is designed to expose students to a wide variety of experiences within the various disciplines of theatre and dance.
