Cultivating Artists. One Stage at a Time.

Emerson Stage and the Department of Performing Arts are where the next generation of actors, designers, stage managers, technicians, administrators, and educators work alongside distinguished faculty, professional staff, and visiting artists to bring skills learned in the classroom to vibrant life on stage.

Each academic year, Emerson Stage shows are produced in each of the five different theatres across campus, including the Cutler Majestic Theatre, the Greene Theater, the Semel Theater, Jackie Liebergott Black Box Theater, and the Robert J. Orchard Stage in the Paramount Center. Learn more about these performance venues.

Most Performing Arts degree program curriculums include Emerson Stage participation requirements. For more detailed information, please visit your degree program page.

Up Next at Emerson Stage: 2024–2025 Season

This season will explore the stories that lie in the unseen: what happens behind the scenes, in the wings of the theatre, in the offices behind closed doors, inside the minds of our most beloved inanimate objects, on the other side of tangible and intangible walls.
