Systems engineering involves complex systems - humans. Current curricula do not fully address the complexities humans present. The purpose of this paper is to examine a discipline that does address those complexities - Theatre. Four courses and two productions are audited by a Systems Engineering graduate student to understand the relationships between Theatre and Systems Engineering. Multiple relationships are found between the two diverse disciplines, and are discussed. The research concludes that further investigations into specific techniques and approaches are necessary and that both disciplines could benefit from this exchange of knowledge.
