RU Theatre & Music
The Rochester University Theatre and Music department is a student-focused artistic community that seeks to engage, inspire, and impact our world by the stories we tell through performance. Our hands-on education develops artists who uncover truth and beauty, examine the human condition, celebrate our diverse society, and develop marketable skills such as communication, critical thinking, and creative problem-solving.
