Opening of the Rob and Judy Gardner Laboratory Theatre
Our BRAND NEW state-of-the-art performance and teaching space!


Gustavus Theatre and Dance, where imagination DANCES with personal transformation and creative excellence ACTS with a social conscience.

Our mission emphasizes the value of performance as a vital means of working for social justice and personal transformation. 

Our students explore ideas and experiment with techniques in our innovative courses, where we seek to understand not only how but also why we must make art, who we are, and what we mean to say.

Students process these questions through multiple opportunities to perform, design, write, craft, build, choreograph, collaborate, direct, and devise in faculty productions and student-led projects.

Our new state-of-the-art Laboratory Theatre, which opened in the fall of 2019, provides even MORE opportunity for students to learn by doing.

WE CREATE CREATORS!
