Welcome to The Arts at Delaware County Community College!

Each year the College offers exciting opportunities to experience the arts. The New Music concert series begins its fourth season with an impressive lineup of contemporary performances you won't want to miss. The Art Gallery currently hosts eight visual art exhibitions showcasing the work of students as well as professional artists of national and international reputation. In addition to exhibitions, artists are periodically invited to hold lectures, collaborative projects, and workshops for the College community and the public. The Drama Department is committed to providing a comprehensive theatre education to our students while bringing the results to the community through a vibrant, thought-provoking production each semester. Our goal is to make the College a cultural destination and contribute to the arts environment available in the Philadelphia region.

Othello

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Stephen Smith

Othello is a tragic Shakespearian play which was written around the year 1603 and was based on a sixteenth century Italian story titled Un Captiano Moro which means ‘A Moorish Captain’. Othello is portrayed as a Moorish general serving in the Venetian army of the time.

The play addresses issues of that time period, most of which are still seen in existence today. It highlights the impact of racial discrimination, jealousy, love and betrayal; elements which are not alien to most Shakespearian plays.
