“We are committed to supporting the creation of theatrical works by student artists while contributing to their academic and professional advancement. We provide practical opportunities in all areas of theatre including artistic creation, production, and administration in a safe and educational environment.”
Theatre Threshold is a professionally modeled producing company within Theatre Arts Department Showcase class at CSU Long Beach. Housed in the intimate Studio 24/26, the company produces 12-14 free-admission one-act productions per semester. The company is managed by undergraduate student staff members who are overseen and mentored by an Advisory Board of Theatre Arts Department staff and faculty mentors. Undergraduate students engage as participants who direct, design, act, stage manage, and crew the productions. The Theatre Threshold staff manages the company so the student participants can apply what they are learning in their classes to the process of making theatre.
