About Us



The mission of the Post Theatre Company is twofold: to provide a production laboratory that mirrors the conditions of a working professional theatre; and to present exceptional live theatre. LIU Post Theatre is among the top theatre training programs in the nation. Acting students receive a broad range of training that includes traditional and non-traditional theatre practices. LIU Post is one of the only undergraduate programs in the country to offer Suzuki training—a rigorous physical discipline designed to increase an actor’s focus and concentration— as part of its core curriculum. Graduates of the program are strong theatre artists who can meet the challenges of this rapidly changing and multi-faceted field.

The Post Theatre Company is staffed by professional working artists and regularly commissions guest artists to work closely with our students. Past productions have won regional, national, and international recognition in the areas of direction, design, ensemble acting, and playwriting. The 2011 production of Re-Membering Antigone received five awards at the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival. In 2014, the production Conditions of Love traveled to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. In 2016, That Art Thou performed at the International University Theatre Association’s World Congress in Manizales, Colombia. The company has also performed internationally in the Czech Republic, Italy, Canada, Greece, and Cyprus.

The Post Theatre Company is the not for-profit resident theatre company of the Department of Theatre, Dance and Arts Management at LIU Post.

Want to Audition?

Admission to the Theatre program for actors requires an audition and interview. The program conducts auditions both on campus, at Unified auditions, and regionally. ALL auditions and interviews for theatre are by appointment only. To schedule your audition, please call 516-299-2900 during business hours. Appointments for theatre auditions at National Unified Auditions are highly recommended. We do accept “walk-in” auditions at National Unified Audition sites time permitting, so stop by our room to request an audition. Auditions at regional events may require pre-registration with a sponsoring organization. Students who successfully complete their application, audition and interview in the fall will be informed of the department’s decision in January. Students who successfully complete their application, audition and interview in the winter or spring will be informed of the department’s decision in March.
