Theater Program Director
Welcome to QU Theater!
Whether you’re a prospective student, current student, alumnus or member of our Hamden community, you’ve come to the right place if you have an interest in theater.
We offer an exciting theater major and a minor that explore all areas of theater production, performance and design. We’ve developed the program with enough flexibility that you can easily double major in theater and just about any other area of study at the university.
Want to perform on stage or be an integral part of our team behind the curtain? We have a ton of opportunities including faculty-led productions, a student theater organization, improv, musical theater and new play development — and you don't have to be a theater major to participate.
Did you know we have high-quality live theater right here in Hamden? Join us at our Theatre Arts Center, where we bring in guest artists from New York, New Haven and around the country to develop new plays and musicals with our students, as well as imaginative interpretations of the classics.
If you’re looking for community, you’ll find it here. I did, 20 years ago as an undergraduate at Quinnipiac. Back then we didn’t have a major or even a minor, but we had a community of enthusiastic and committed students and faculty who appreciated the meaningful experiences and lifelong friendships born from rigorous involvement in theater. That sense of community is still at the heart of what we do today.
Are you a prospective student? I’d be delighted to hear from you. Let’s meet to discuss your interests and goals in theater — I’d love to tell you more about what makes QU theater special.
Regardless of what brought you here, I hope you’ll consider joining us!
Kevin Daly, Theater Program Director
