At NMSU Theatre Arts, our students are our most important asset.  In our program you'll have opportunities to perform, design, stage manage and even direct mainstage productions.  We allow incoming freshmen to work on productions right away, either as actors or backstage crew.  Schools with graduate programs often prioritize graduate student needs above undergraduates; at NMSU Theatre Arts, we have only an undergraduate program, so you are our top priority and get all production opportunities.  Best of all, there is no audition to get into our program: all you need to do is simply declare Theatre Arts as your major when you enroll!
