Theatre Student Resources

The faculty and staff of the Department of Theatre at VCUarts unequivocally condemn all forms of bigotry, racism, and anti-Blackness. We are determined to support all our students by mindfully creating a culture of both safety and accountability within our department where BIPOC students feel seen and all our students feel valued.

The Student Alliance Laboratory Theatre (SALT) is an amazing resource for Theatre students. SALT facilitates, encourages and promotes the public performance of student theatre at the Shafer Street Playhouse. SALT’s goal is that students will take personal and artistic risks, which will result in engaging, quality theatre that challenges and enriches the students involved and the community alike.
