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, students gain practical experience working both onstage and backstage with a diverse faculty, professional theatre artists, and an experienced support staff in the 430 seat Bean-Brown Theatre. Students not only hone their craft in the classroom, but they also learn to apply it while being mentored in a professional environment. Be a part of the exciting things happening in theatre at Shelton State.


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
