The Department of Theatre is paving the way for big changes in the professional theatre world with a focus on the Theatre Studies program. Theatre alumna Jessica Steinrock is applying her dissertation research and experience working in intimacy coordination to move the entertainment industry towards more consent-based practices. Illinois Theatre alumnus Tyrone Phillips (BFA ‘12, Acting) returned to Krannert Center to direct The Royale and alum and Champaign native Jonathan Butler-Duplessis (BFA ’10 Acting) made his Broadway debut as Hamilton’s iconic Aaron Burr in February 2023.
