Theatre & Cinema Performance

Develop acting techniques in an integrative program designed for stage, film and television.

The Theatre & Cinema Performance (TCP) program is designed to fill the huge void between Classical Theatre Training and Acting for Film/TV. Today, we are in the throes of what will be and is considered “the second golden age of television.” Every cable network from A&E to Hulu, Amazon, INSP and, of course, Netflix are creating original content for their networks, offering countless opportunities for the properly trained actor. The traditional “Classical Theatre” training does not adequately prepare students for todays Theatre & Cinema landscape.

The TCP Program Has Three Goals:

  • Provide a craft of acting that works as seamlessly on Stage as on the Screen.
  • Offer our students opportunities to perform in Theatre productions AND Film/TV productions.
  • Encourage an entrepreneur spirit within the confines of a Christian World View.


We offer scholarships in the following disciplines:

  • ACTING – By Scheduled Audition

Acting scholarships are available for students who major or minor in Theatre & Cinema Performance.

The audition consists of preparing TWO contrasting monologues each 1 minute in length.

For all technical theatre scholarships, students do not have to major or minor in Theatre & Cinema Performance. Auditions are by interview.

For more information on auditions at Asbury or to schedule a Tech interview, contact Professor Jeff Day:
