Create. Connect. Inspire.

Concordia University Ann Arbor’s theatre department strives to develop artists who use the stage as a tool to expound on their individual creativity to form stories into lasting performances that inspire and positively connect with the community. Students build their knowledge through a wide variety of participation from performances, classes, collaborations with other departments and work study positions.

Our Vision

For over 30 years, the theatre department at Concordia University Ann Arbor has held the reputation of positively impacting the community through the stage.

The University’s Kreft Black Box hosts the department’s annual fall play and spring musical. Each production is fully staged and given full technical support with scenery, lighting, costumes and sound. In addition, the theatre department presents the annual Boar’s Head Festival held in December. This festival, initiated in 1978 by professors Paul Foelber, John Sturmfels and Quentin Mario, has become a treasured annual event both on campus and in the Ann Arbor community.

Involvement in theatre at Concordia is encouraged for students of all disciplines, not just those pursuing a minor in theatre. Opportunities for participation are available in performing, assistant directing, stage management, and crafting behind-the-scenes.

Prepare to take the stage and explore Concordia’s theatre program.
