Northern State University Theatre has proven to be the regional mecca for the arts, boasting the talent to put on big-name musical productions such as “The Phantom of the Opera” and drawing sell-out crowds from long distances.
If you have a passion for theater, you can be part of that success – on stage or behind the scenes. The NSU Theatre department produces 2 main stage musicals each season plus a touring musical review, so potential students have many performance opportunities.
