St. Ursula Academy offers a full four-year program in Theatre. Students are given the opportunity to learn the historical and theoretical tools necessary for performance, interpretation, and criticism of the craft as well as learn fundamental tools in communication courses. Students study the field of arts administration in addition to gaining first-hand experience on the stage. It is important for students to appreciate the demands of rehearsal and performance as well as how roles are created, perfected and sustained. Students are able to learn and experience multiple production elements including costuming, lighting, sound, makeup, properties, and scenic design. The emphasis of the theatre program at St. Ursula Academy is not only to develop an appreciation for the arts, but to develop poise and confidence in the students' ability to communicate effectively.
The St. Ursula Ensemble Theatre (SET) presents two plays each season at the St. Ursula Academy Theatre, one of which features only freshmen and sophomores.
The spring musical is presented at the Aronoff Center for the Arts in downtown Cincinnati.
