BackStage Magazine ranked the CSUN Theatre Department as one of the top nine university programs in the nation that were "the most effective and offer a unique approach to the college-professional connection," noting the department is "ideally situated for finding internships in the Industry." 

The Department of Theatre is located in Nordhoff Hall on the southwest corner of the California State University, Northridge campus in suburban Los Angeles. 

The Department has 8 full time faculty, 15 part-time faculty, and 10 professional staff who serve over 250 undergraduate and graduate theatre majors.

The Department houses three theater spaces - the Campus Theatre, Little Theatre, and Experimental Theatre, and mounts eight productions during academic year. In the summer, the Department holds the Teenage Drama Workshop, a theatre training program for rising 7th -12th grade students.

Beginning today and for the next five weeks, CSUN is raising money for three very worthy causes with three very special stories.

The Brown Center for Adaptive Aquatic Therapy has been a success story on campus, giving students hands-on learning opportunities while providing life-changing physical therapy to clients from the surrounding community. But technology upgrades and equipment are in high need to continue this effort.

CSUN’s Institute for Community Health and Well Being services all Matadors, but in particular its work to give space and care for students, faculty and staff who are also breastfeeding mothers has been invaluable. However, there is need for more space.

CSUN’s Department of Theatre has entertained audiences while giving opportunities to students and burgeoning thespians through the Teenage Drama Workshop program to hone their craft. Yet a recent federal ruling gave rise to a need for new equipment immediately.
