The Performance concentration prepares students to pursue professinal careers in theatre, film, television and related fields or entry into graduate programs. Additionally, it is our aim to create a culture of arts awareness and advocacy.


  • Performance opportunities available all four years – 70+ performances annually.
  • Actor training in Stanislavski and Meisner techniques.
  • Graduating seniors in the Performance concentration will have the opportunity to participate in a national and local industry showcase in order to sign with representation upon entry into the profession.

Undergraduate acting coursework centers around the Seven Pillars Acting technique, an internationally utilized training program developed by Sonya Cooke, Head of Undergraduate Performance at LSU.
