University of Nebraska (Johnny Carson School of Theatre & Film)

Welcome to the Johnny Carson School of Theatre & Film! Our superb faculty, staff and students are constantly on the move, working in the professional theatre and film industry year-round, bridging the gap between the University and the profession. Our programs are accredited by two of the nations most prestigious organizations: the National Association of Schools of Theatre (NAST) and by the University/Resident Theatre Association (U/RTA). We have a full complement of production opportunities in all disciplines, including film, new media, production, design, acting, directing and management. Our students are involved in all aspects of the production process that extends the classroom to the stage.

The Johnny Carson School of Theatre & Film truly is a unique place to prepare for a life in the entertainment industry. We have affiliations with the Nebraska Repertory Theatre, the Lied Center for Performing Arts and the Mary Reipma Ross Film Theatre. Guest artists are constantly in our classrooms. In 2005 alone, we hosted Ernie Hudson, Jorge Zamacona, Sandy Veniziano, Mel Efros, Don Farber, Rinde Eckert, and the Aquilla Theatre Company. Our unique relationship with the Lied Center for Performing Arts allows us to share the talents of the artists that visit the Lied, giving our students the chance to find out what the business is really like from an insiders perspective.

Our graduates are working in the film and theatre business as designers, producers, agents, performers, media designers, consultants and technicians across the United States. Students have made the most of their training by becoming active participants in study abroad programs and in the exchange programs we have with the Schepkin School in Moscow Russia and the Film Acting School Cologne. Students have consistently been awarded at the regional and national level through the Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival. I could go on and on.

The Johnny Carson School of Theatre & Film is an exciting place to be. We are glad that you are interested in the programs here at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and are happy to help you excel in the Theatre and Film business.
