Through association with The Clarence Brown Theatre, the facilities for actor training at the University of Tennessee are among the finest in the nation.

Our season offers a varied repertoire of plays and musicals featuring nationally renowned guest artists. This enables actors in training to acquire experience under the guidance of a faculty of professional artists as well as academic scholars, within a community that includes actors, directors, designers, dramaturgs and technical artists. In addition to the Clarence Brown Theatre, the Department of Theatre has two other performance spaces: The Ula Love Doughty Carousel Theatre, and the Lab Theatre.

The flagship campus of the University of Tennessee System and partner in the Tennessee Transfer Pathway.
