Local Scene

As a student studying theater, Lexington gives you a wonderful opportunity to learn and observe your craft from talented actors, technicians, directors, and more both on campus and off. There are several prominent theaters within walking distance of Transylvania's downtown campus, and many more are just a short drive away. Click the links below to check out some of what the regional theater scene has to offer.

Lexington's population of 300,000 means there are plenty of opportunities for having fun, finding a part-time job or internship, or taking advantage of the city's cultural attractions. There are more than 30,000 college students in the Lexington area, and Kiplinger's recently named Lexington one of the top cities for young single adults.
