People pursue a degree in theater for a number of reasons. Some just like to act. Others may want to pursue a career as a playwright, director or just become President of the United States. But what ever the reason, a degree in theater can take you to places you never envisioned.
Theater majors work in the field of entertainment, education, art direction, design, industry and commerce. The Sheridan College theater department is led by two outstanding actors/directors whose resumes include over twenty five years of professional theater experience and are both vested in Actors Equity Association.
