Theater is alive and well at Caltech, thanks to TACIT (Theater Arts at the California Institute of Technology).  A  group of thespians drawn from student, staff, and even faculty ranks, presents three shows every academic year.

Recent productions have included The Rover; The Memorandum; Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and Othello; Marivaux’s Double Infidelity; Chekhov’s The Notebook of Trigorin; Ibsen's Hedda Gabler; and Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of an Author.

Visual Art

From painting to drawing, ceramics and silk screening, Caltech has classes and facilities to meet the creative needs of our students.
