Welcome to the Dan School of Drama and Music

In the Drama programs at Queen's University Dan School of Drama and Music, theory informs practice and practice informs theory. We study all aspects of theatre, from acting and directing to theatre history and dramatic literature. Students enjoy many opportunities to get involved with our productions, which have been described as “intriguing work that meets a high level of accomplishment." 

 

The Drama programs within the Dan School of Drama and Music emphasizes a balanced approach in which theory informs practice and practice informs theory. We study all aspects of theatre, from acting and directing to theatre history and dramatic literature, and we offer a variety of opportunities to become involved with our productions, which have been described as “intriguing work that meets a high level of accomplishment”.

Some of our popular offerings include Music Theatre, Acting, Technical Production and our summer courses in residence at the Shaw Festival. We also offer an internship course in which students work with a professional theatre company.

Our graduates are broadly resourceful thinkers and practitioners able to work comfortably and confidently in a wide range of professions. Studying Drama at Queen’s can take place in three main locations – Theological Hall, one of Queen’s oldest buildings and often referred to as the most dramatic building on campus; our Castle in England or at the new, world-class Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts).
