University of California, Irvine Claire Trevor School of the Arts Drama Department
The goal of the Department of Drama at the University of California at Irvine is a simple one: to produce students who combine a critical intelligence with disciplined theatrical experience. It is our most funda mental belief that intellectual integrity is not incompatible with professional excellence, and that in point of fact one cannot exist without the other. Thus in our productions we will aim at perceiving and expressing the depth of an author's art and skill, and in our instructional program we will demand the same dedication and involvement expected of members in a theatrical company. Our commitment to theatre is total: to its art and to its genius in the expression of Life.
