The Kalamazoo College Theatre Arts Department believes that learning about plays and theatre history is a great way to study politics, literature, history, and culture. We produce three mainstage shows each year in addition to the student-directed plays in our Senior Performance Series. We collaborate with the music department on a musical every other year. We also produce student written plays. The college has a successful student improv company, and the city of Kalamazoo has many theatre companies which produce a wide range of work. Our students intern at theatres in Chicago and New York, and we enjoy professional guest artists on a regular basis.
To make all this happen we depend on theatre artists like you—performers, designers, technicians, writers, and directors.
We encourage you to include an Arts Supplement with your application, even if you do not plan to major or minor in Theatre. To do so, please submit:
- The Common Application Arts Supplement
- A theater résumé (training, classes, performances, crew experience, leadership positions, awards, and festival participation).
- A recording (link to website such as You Tube or DVD) of two contrasting audition monologues or portfolio of technical theatre and/or design. The latter should not exceed four minutes. Be sure that the Theatre Department can easily identify you in the video.
Please send any physical your materials to:
Office of Admission
1200 Academy Street

Your materials will be carefully reviewed by our professional faculty. Please address any questions to Lara Magdzinski at email@example.com.
