Graduates from the Department of Theatre are successful theatre artists practicing across Canada and the world as directors, actors, playwrights, set and costume designers, technical directors, production managers, scenic carpenters, artistic directors, cultural administrators and more. Many others have gone on to apply their research, management and creative skills towards other careers, from business to academia and beyond!

Phoenix Alumni Network

The Phoenix Alumni Network is a UVic Alumni program just for theatre graduates.This group is a vital part of our alumni initiatives, helping to organize alumni activities and events, develop a mentorship program to connect established alumni with current theatre students and recent graduates, and apply for UVic grants in support of initiatives and events (like the 50th anniversary). Our first few meetings were full of great ideas, some have already been initiated.

How can you get involved?
