Students MUST consult with a faculty advisor in the Theatre Arts Department
before entering this program and scheduling classes!


This program provides basic theatre training as a powerful form of experiential learning that prompts students to
as individuals, critical thinkers, and artists. Through classroom and practical training in acting, general and
technical sequences, the Theatre Department produces works of theatre art, offering direct participation in
creative endeavors where process, performance, and understanding are stressed equally. The production program stages
several shows each year that are directed and designed by faculty, guest artists and, in some instances, advanced students
chosen by the faculty. The productions span all genres of theatre, from Shakespeare to Shepard, from mystery plays to
musical theatre. The Theatre Arts A.S. Degree provides the foundation for transfer into B.A. or B.F.A programs and,
in some instances, employment in the field.

The Acting Sequence (THAC) requires an audition.
Generally, students must first matriculate in the General Theatre Sequence* and then apply at
an announced time during the semester.

*(exceptions may be made, at the discretion the Academic Chair when non-matriculated candidates are identified by faculty)
