Acting

We believe that an actor needs as many artistic tools as possible. The Acting program at UHM allows the serious acting student to study forms and methods from the broadest array available at any university. Actors can study a range of world forms: mask, puppetry, clown, commedia dell’arte, Strasberg and Meisner techniques, acting for film and TV, Shakespeare, period styles, dialects, stage combat, dance, musical theatre, devised theatre, Hawaiian theatre, and a rich variety of Asian forms including kabuki, kyogen, and noh from Japan, jingju from China, and randai from Indonesia. ┬áStudents leave the program with the unique knowledge of how these styles intersect, intertwine, and inform the art of live performance. Nowhere else can actors get the breadth and depth of theatrical experience found in the Acting program at UHM.

Degrees offered: MFA (Acting); MFA (Asian Performance: Acting)
