Theatre Faculty "MSU is a great place to create theatre because the environment is so collaborative.  Everyone is involved on some way in every production.  If you want to be involved, there is something for you the minute you walk in the door.  I love the hands on work I get with my students every day."

Throughout my journey at Morehead State University, my knowledge of theatre has been expanded and I have grown as an artists through the encouragement of my professors and the friendly atmosphere that our department has established.
