With a history that reaches back to the 1840s, Kenyon's theatrical tradition is well-established and well-respected. In fact, Kenyon is listed as one of "The Fifteen Best Colleges for the Aspiring Actor" in the College Finder. One reason for this reputation is that students learn by doing the jobs of the artists who collaborate to make plays, dances, and films. Some courses concentrate on the arts as they were performed in their historical context; others focus on the work of the artists: the playwright, screenwriter, choreographer, actor, dancer, director, and designer. Almost all courses require, in conjunction with reading and critical writing, the performance of problems and exercises. It is a multi-dimensional, challenging, and rewarding course of study - one that alumni use with great success.
