Choose Creativity


The Program

Our production-oriented program, the University Theatre, produces at least four productions a year.  Two of  which are fully realized main stage productions, and two are student-driven laboratory productions. Additionally, students participate in an annual Cabaret Showcase.

Students may choose from a range of courses including, but not limited to, acting, stagecraft, dance, design, stage management, theatre history and directing. University Theatre is an organizational member of the South Carolina Theatre Association and the Southeastern Theatre Conference. We also are active participants in the Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival, entering two productions a year.


University Theatre Players – The USCA student organization that supports the theatre program. UTP Is open to all USCA students. UTP is active in supporting University Theatre and University, Student Activity, and Etherredge Center events. UTP produces the Garcia Theatre Project, a one-act theatre festival for Aiken County Schools every spring.  The UTP Students also perform for Freshman Orientation each year.
