Our Vision and Values

We offer exceptional pre-professional training in a liberal arts setting. As a student, you’ll learn from nationally recognized faculty, guest artists, and industry professionals who will inspire you to think creatively, work collaboratively, and improve the world around you.

What's on Stage?

Our dynamic production season enriches the education of our students and allows for an extension of the skills they are learning in the classroom.

From the 400-seat University Theatre to the versatile Korsgaard Dance Studio, our production season is filled every year. Productions range from classics such as “Romeo and Juliet” to contemporary favorites like “Shrek: The Musical.”

Auditions, Interviews, and Scholarships

In addition to meeting the university’s admission criteria, you will need to audition or interview for our programs. We schedule dates on campus throughout the year, as well as participate in the National Unified Auditions.

There are many scholarships available to our students. We encourage you to review them and apply!

Alumni Profile

Our degrees place you among an amazing group of alumni who have gone on to successful careers both on the stage and behind the scenes. Ball State alumni currently work on and off Broadway, in Chicago, on national tours, in regional theatre, and in film and television
