WPI has a rich and long running history of theatre and performance on campus. Current groups who continue this tradition are:
- Alpha Psi Omega - WPI's Chapter of the National Dramatic Honor Fraternity
- Masque - WPI's main theatre organization that stages three major productions each year.
- WPI Department of Humanities and Arts, Division of Drama/Theatre - WPI's academic theatre program: maintains and supports all productions in the Little Theatre, grants academic credit for performance work, and advises majors, minors, HUA requirement projects, and other academic theatre activities. The D/T faculty and staff, the LT Squad and the Squad associates, the PLAs and the D/T resource library are supported by funding from HUA Drama/Theatre.
