Our Alumni

Our alumni are a valuable resource to our department in innumerable ways. They are actively engaged in building support networks for each other and for the students who continue to join their ranks. One way they support each other is via Facebook groups built around cohorts in major cities including Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York City. Check out the Facebook communities at Appalachian State Theatre Alum.

We are proud of our graduates, whether they establish careers in theatre and dance or apply their education to other areas such as law, sales, marketing, or management.
