Theatre Student Clubs

Building Community

In addition to our classes, productions, practicums, and internships, every student has access to student-run clubs.  These clubs are a way to get involved, provide service to the community, make new friends, and have FUN!

Metro Theatre Association (MTA)

Every Theatre Major & Minor becomes a part of the MTA (Metro Theatre Association) upon joining the program.  Because of this membership, our department collaborates with the Student Affairs Board (SAB) of MSU Denver to receive funding for our productions. 

This funding allows EVERY MSU Denver student the opportunity to take advantage of making arrangements for one (1) free ticket for each production.  







Alpha Psi Omega (APO)

APO is a National Honorary Theatre Fraternity and is the "largest national honor society in America ... for fully accredited institutions with a four-year curriculum in theatre and drama, leading to a degree."   The MSU Denver Theatre department chartered the "Alpha Gamma Beta Chapter" in 2003.

APO meets regularly during the semester to create and participate in service and performance activities that allow them to showcase talents and embrace the philanthropic goals of the organization.  Events have included – raising funds to students in need, doing staged readings of new scripts, and planning student social events and talent shows.

APO’s motto is:  "We seek to become humble artists by the one and only road of labor and service.

The answer is always “Yes...and”? This student led improv club meets throughout the semester to practice their improv skills, meet new friends, and plan for public performances.  This club presents two pubic showcases throughout the semester and takes time to visit other improv clubs or perform at open-mic events.









Theatre Tech Club

Our Tech Club is a group of talented and motivated students who share commonality in the tech side of theatre.  Whether your passions lie in lights, sound, set construction, set design, props, or costumes, you fit with this group.  Each year members of this group raise funds for the national USITT annual conference.  The Tech Club also provides intermission refreshments for all our productions.  You must try the lemon bars!  They are simply the best!









Stage Combat Club

Many of our theatre students enjoy the heat of the battle - especially when you get to play with broad swords, rapiers, and plan trick falls or punches.  Members of this club meet to practice their stage combat skills, create and present performances, and attend conferences and fairs. (This club is currently on hiatus).
