back to Degrees Offered

The stage directing/management program at Greensboro College is incredibly unique in the southeastern states. Students, from the moment they walk into the department, tackle directing, stage management, and theater management. The courses are taught by GC professors and local-area theatre professionals. Triad Stage, Greensboro's premier Equity theatre, trains students on-site at a professional theatre.


What's so unique about the program?

Opportunities to direct, stage manage, and production manage shows in the department, even in your first year here. You will have ample opportunity to apply your classroom learning into creating fully-realized productions. Through these opportunities and with internships at Triad Stage, Barter Theatre, and the Berkshire Theater Festival, Greensboro College Theatre prepares directors and management students for opportunities in professional theatre or graduate school.






Most recently, senior directing student Ben McCarthy was given the opportunity to direct this seasons main stage musical, Little Shop of Horrors. This is first time in GCT's history to hand over all the responsibility of the musical to a student, and is incredibly infrequent in other college's programs. The theatre department here treats student-directed work with no less importance than that of a show directed by a faculty member. We are all here to collaborate and create quality, honest work and all the while educational.
