The Department has a full-time faculty of thirteen and a fully professional regional theatre staff. All faculty members are practicing professional artists as well as dedicated teachers. Seven faculty members teach acting, directing, and history and literature of the theatre, while six teach design and technology. A senior lecturer and several resident artists of the Clarence Brown Theatre also teach, act, direct, and otherwise participate fully in the work of the Department. Further complementing the faculty, two eminent scholars of dramatic literature from the English Department teach and otherwise contribute as adjunct faculty of the Theatre Department.
