We are here for YOU.

Theatre Major - Your Personal Theatre Mentor

Every theatre major receives personal one-on-one mentoring by a theatre faculty mentor who will work with you throughout your entire tenure at Queensborough to ensure an appropriate academic plan, timely graduation, and a successful transfer.

The current mentor list is located below.

New majors are assigned faculty mentors in the 4th week of their 1st semester.


Not a Theatre Major?

Not a problem. All opportunities are open to all Queensborough students, in the classroom, onstage, backstage, & front-of-house. Experience not necessary, only a desire to make theatre. Explore opportunities and get involved

Registration & Advisement

Take the right courses at the right time. Theatre courses fill up quick. Register early & secure your seat.

Save time & money when you meet with your mentor and discuss registration and transfer options.

Theatre majors are advised not to register for courses that begin or end after 4:10pm, so as to participate in productions, co-, and extra-, curricular department activities.

Students cast in productions will be registered for TH-122/222 Actor’s Workshop I & II (Tuesdays/Thursdays 4:10pm-6:40pm) and receive 3 credits.
