Theatre Council is a student-run Academic Society that allows students to be involved in BYU-Idaho's Theatre Department. It is responsible for opening night soirees, production talk-backs, student directed productions, student feedback for productions, playwright readings/performances, and many other theatrical activities.

Who Can Join?

The Theatre Council is open to all students, regardless of major.


Meetings are held every first Thursday of the month, from 2 pm to 3 pm in the Actor's Studio located in the Snow building.

Workshop courses are offered by the Theatre Council on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Thursdays of the month, from 2 pm to 3 pm.
