UVA Department of Drama


The UVA Department of Drama prepares students to work in theatre by providing excellent training and interactions and fostering collaboration in coursework and productions.

Drama Students at U.Va. have the opportunity to pursue their degrees in a state-of-the-art theatre complex, which includes the 520-seat Culbreth Theatre with proscenium stage, the flexible 160 to 200-seat Helms Theatre, and the 300-seat Ruth Caplin Theatre.

The Dance Minor program of the Department of Drama engages both practical and theoretical applications to unmask dance as an investigative, expressive, and collaborative field of study. The program emphasizes the value of dance as an artistic practice. It exposes students to creative structures and methodologies that enable them to develop self-reflexive and critical thinking skills. 

The Drama Building also houses classrooms with state-of-the-art technology, studio space, costume, and scene shops. The Fiske-Kimball Fine Arts Library is just a few steps away.

Tickets for performances may be purchased from the UVA Arts Box Office.
