Theatre Arts


The Theatre Arts program provides students with both the theory and practical experience necessary for either employment in beginning levels of professional theatre or transfer to a theatre arts major in a four-year institution. Various productions are offered to provide students with a broad range of practical training.

The Theatre Arts program is designed to give the serious theatre student the theory, applied training, and performing experience required for employment in the industry. Another positive program feature is that our professional faculty transmits a passion for theatre to the student.

The stuff of musical theatre legend, The Fantasticks is the longest running theatrical production in history. The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, two fathers and a wall. The narrator, El Gallo, asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. The boy and the girl fall in love, grow apart, and finally find their way back to each other after realizing the truth in El Gallo's words that "without a hurt, the heart is hollow". At the heart of it all is breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication with a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time.
