Welcome to The Arts at Delaware County Community College!

Now in its tenth season, the Arts at Delaware County Community College gives you exciting opportunities to experience the arts. The New Music concert series offers 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.

The Full Monty

Book by Terrence McNallyMusic & Lyrics by David Yazbek
Directed by Beth Criscuolo

While spying on their wives at a "Girls' Night Out," a group of unemployed steelworkers from Buffalo sees how much they enjoy watching male strippers. Jealous, out of work and feeling emasculated, the men come up with a bold and unclothed way to make some quick cash. In preparing, they find themselves extremely exposed; not merely physically but emotionally. As they conquer their fears, self-consciousness and prejudices, the men come to discover that they're stronger as a group, and the strength that they find in each other gives them the individual courage to "let it go." Source: Music Theatre International

The Full Monty is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
