A number of Performing Arts groups offer students opportunities to spread their theatrical and musical wings and soar throughout their academic pursuits at Ohio Valley University. An excellent education involves the whole student, and for those with artistic flair, Performing Arts round out the university experience.


All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances…
--William Shakespeare, As You Like It

Ohio Valley University’s student theater program brings all the world onto one stage for those who, like Shakespeare’s Jaques, recognize the theatric in every moment. Performing such diverse productions as Little Shop of Horrors and The Diary of Anne Frank, the OVUTheatre Department offers students the opportunity to develop range and depth as they bring life to the stage.

For students inclined to direct, create stage art, and support productions with lighting and sound, the Ohio Valley University Theater Department has a vital role for you!
