The Theatre Department offers advanced courses in each of these specialized concentrations, as well as advanced studio courses, which enable students to work one-on-one with their professors.

The Otto L. Sonder, Jr. Endowed Program in American Musical Theatre supports American musical theatre productions at Lycoming College. The late Dr. Otto Sonder, a graduate of Lycoming College and later a faculty member, made this extraordinary gift to provide students with premier opportunities to perform, design and produce musical theatre at Lycoming College.
