Theatre and Performance Studies at GSU considers performing the stories of others, as well as of the self, imperative for initiating and sustaining a dialogue of shared human experience across identities, diversities, and desires. TAPS provides students with an understanding of the role of storytelling on stage and in everyday life, awareness of cultural diversity and civic engagement, as well as heightened communication, leadership, and critical thinking skills. The program seeks to create well-rounded students, cultivating creative, critical, collaborative, and compassionate voices that move toward fulfilling careers and meaningful lives.

Whether on stage, behind the scenes, or in the classroom, Theatre and Performance Studies is committed to making art that is provocative, innovative, insightful, engaged, and resonant.
