Theatre on Campus

One way to get involved at DePaul is through theatre. If you ever did theatre in high school, you know how much fun it can be. At DePaul, there are many ways you can continue your love and get on the stage (or behind the stage if you would prefer to do tech). 

The Theatre School at DePaul, widely regarded, is a space where smaller clubs can perform shows. If you are not a student in The Theatre School, unfortunately, you cannot participate in their big performances. But there are other shows, small one acts and the like, that you can audition for. 

There is DePaul Theatre Union, which is a fun club organization that any student can join. Their motto is about that anyone of any major can join and perform shows. DePaul Theatre Union usually does one show per quarter and they are recognized and licensed shows. Last year they did Mousetrap, Waiting for Godot, and Steel Magnolias. This year they’re currently working on the musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and 39 Steps

If you love theatre but want something different, you can do Springboard Theatre. This company focuses on self-written work. They do a lot of smaller projects throughout the year too, instead of full shows like DePaul Theatre Union. 

For the last 20 years, DePaul also organizes a performance of The Vagina Monologues. If you are interested in a play about feminism and women’s bodies, this play runs annually, always in the month of February. 

Hopefully these options are a way for you to get your theatre fix. If it isn’t, you can start your own organization and put on the performances you want to see!
