  TRAIN WITH THE BEST

Our students learn and work on a daily basis with a faculty and staff that consists of leaders in the American theatre.
In addition to our full time professionals on faculty and staff we provide you with nationally recognized adjunct professors and guest artists.  Some of our visiting professionals include:

Eric Coble - Practicing playwright and screenwriter. He is a member of the Playwrights' Unit of the Cleveland Play House.

Stephen Kopel - WSU alumnus and Casting Director for television, film and broadway theatre.

Michael Downs - Practicing freelance scenic designer and creative director.

Graham Cottendon - Senior Lecturer of Costume Design at the Arts University Bournemouth, England.


As WSU Theatre continues to work toward professional and personal excellence, we want to extend thanks to you, our valuable audience members, patrons, parents, donors, and local businesses who have helped to make our students and program successful. Without community support, investment, and enjoyment, the arts as we know them would surely become obsolete. However, we can assure you that our performing arts will continue to delight, entertain, challenge, and affect both the Wichita community and the global one!
