The Shelton State Theatre department offers students education, training, and experience in theatre performance and technical theatre. Through department productions and a unique partnership with Theatre Tuscaloosa, our students gain practical experience working both onstage and backstage with a diverse faculty, professional theatre artists, and an experienced support staff in the 440 seat Bean-Brown Theatre. Our graduates work in all areas of the entertainment industry from live theatre to radio; from film to online video.
Each artist takes pride in their journey, and all are proud of their experience in the Shelton State Theatre Department.
I had a chance to do everything from deck crew, fly captain, spotlight, to stage manage in the first year!
– Julie Arrington
I learned more than just how to act on a stage, but how to be committed to something and be accountable to others, not just myself.
– Eric Curtis
We did theatre because we loved it, we had passion and we had a family, a family that still exists.
– Amanda Anderson
