Plays have been written on every topic and theme imaginable. The discipline of theatre is extraordinary in its ability to encompass any subject, while serving as a laboratory for the examination of humanity. The theatrical endeavor shares the key to a liberal arts education and supports the Hampden-Sydney College mission to "form good men and good citizens in an atmosphere of sound learning." A cross-disciplinary program, the Theatre department offers classes and independent studies ranging from beginning to advanced acting, set and light design, stagecraft, playwriting, and directing.

The Fine Arts department produces two main stage productions a year. Be part of a theatre production each semester!
