The three-year Theatre - Acting Program aims to achieve the acquisition of the basic tools, skills, artistic insights and theoretical knowledge considered essential for a professional actor.

This program has its roots in the tradition of the National Conservatoire since the 19th Century, but has established a privileged relation with the contemporary performative arts.  This means that we try to cover fundamental moments from the practice and history of theatre, stressing a multifaceted technical education utilizing several methods drawn from the Naturalism, Symbolism and 20th Century Vanguard movements until  the most recent procedures in the context of performative arts and performance.  This also is true in the context of texts used.

The prestige of the Theatre - Acting Program of the Department of Theatre of the Escola Superior de Teatro eCinema is nationally and internationally recognized and its students receive professional acknowledgement.

The Department of Theatre has several protocols with historical theatres in Lisbon where the students are able to perform their projects in a professional context, for instance, at the National Theatre D. Maria II, Teatro Taborda, Teatro Maria Matos, etc.
