    Look for colleges with a theatre major. If you would like to pursue theatre in a full academic environment (in contrast to a specialty school), you could start with Hudson River schools such as Sarah Lawrence, Vassar and Skidmore; Connecticut College, as well as a other NESCACs such as Middlebury and Hamilton; and Kenyon, Occidental, Muhlenberg and Drew.

    Do you want to major in acting, or just pursue it as an activity in college?

    Many, many schools offer opportunities for students to audition/perform on stage.

    My son did not major in theater, but acted in several plays during college for fun.

    Also, there is a forum in CC for those applying for a theater/drama major that may be of interest:
