Prepare to Act

The theatre program at Elmhurst combines the theory and history of drama with plenty of opportunities for on- and offstage experience.

Join Our Audience

From wacky improv to serious drama, Elmhurst College theatre has engaged audiences with thought-provoking productions since the 1920s.

Each year, Elmhurst theatre faculty and students collaborate on a full season of musicals, plays, student-directing projects, and children's theatre. Mill performances ask probing questions, offer new ways to see the world, and showcase a variety of genres and playwrights.

All productions take place in the College’s intimate Mill Theatre, a converted sawmill that has housed Elmhurst’s theatre program since 1969. At the Mill, Elmhurst theatre, musical theatre and theatre education majors work alongside biology majors, English majors and more. All student performers and technicians tackle a variety of acting, technical and leadership challenges.

To learn more about productions at the Mill Theatre, browse our season or contact us. We look forward to seeing you at the Mill.
