The Kenan Theatre Company is a community of student and professional theatre artists that provides opportunities for Dramatic Art students to put classroom learning to practical use by producing a season of professional quality theatre.
The Kenan Theatre Company (KTC), part of the Department of Dramatic Art, is the undergraduate production company that oversees the Kenan Theatre. KTC is comprised of students who are interested in the practical application of theatre through production. KTC consists of a student-produced season with faculty, guest, and student-directed productions.
The Kenan Theatre Company produces four shows every academic year. Each show is student led with educational oversight from department faculty. Shows are selected by a team of students to address the needs of the department as well as reflect current issues in theatre and our Chapel Hill community. Selected shows range from classics to premieres of new works, giving students a chance to work with differences in text, movement, and theory.
