Students Performing a Play

Overview

Our mission is to provide a hands-on, high-quality education with diverse production experiences and classes to prepare students for transfer to four-year universities, enter professional training programs, or begin work in the industry. We possess an active production schedule for students interested in both on and offstage work. Each year our production season varies in content, style, and shifts with student's interests. Faculty and staff work closely with students in all aspects of the discipline and mentor students in their creative and career pursuits.
