Welcome to Castleton Arts!

Community. Engagement. Transformation.

These three words summarize the ongoing efforts of Castleton University’s arts programs as we continue to expand our offerings, diversify our audiences, and invite conversation from the rich tapestry of our community. Through the production of plays, musicals, concerts, and exhibitions by our three outstanding academic departments, the presentation of some of the world’s finest artists and speakers through Castleton’s renowned Soundings general education program, and our collaboration with outside partners such as Rutland’s Paramount Theatre, we are in the process of creating something very special in our corner of New England.

Indeed, the arts are thriving in Spartan Nation. Academically, our departments of Art, Music, and Theater Arts continue to educate and train artists, arts leaders, and educators of tomorrow with recent graduates securing positions in schools throughout the region and undertaking professional careers in epicenters of arts & culture such as New York City, Boston, and as far afield as Colorado and California. Our students are making their marks far and wide—from Arizona to the Carolinas to the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.

As we grow, we are reminded constantly of our obligations to our community—that is, that the arts are virtually useless unless the experience of them is shared. To this end, we are proud to offer a diverse lineup of events this year that will thrill, challenge, and cause our audiences to consider not only the role of the arts in our society, but also the role of the society itself. As our region grapples with how (and whether) to accommodate the resettlement of refugee families in our communities, Castleton Arts will present a number of arts events designed to encourage education, conversation, and compassion in our approach to these issues. Simply put, we believe in the power of the arts to bring people together, to stimulate our senses and minds, and to encourage positive social and personal transformation.

I hope you will join us on this journey and support the arts at Castleton. We look forward to seeing you—now on with the show!
