Mission Statement 

Ferrum College is a dynamic learning community where students enter with promise and leave with purpose. 

As part of the Performing Arts at Ferrum College, the Theatre Department serves the community by bringing together people of diverse ages and backgrounds to celebrate together, confront challenging ideas together, and create shared experiences, to build a sense of belonging. The Ferrum College Theatre Department teaches students to be collaborative, sustainably focused, and innovative problem solvers.
