Welcome to The Arts at Delaware County Community College!

Now in its eleventh 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.

Spring Musical Production

Bright Star

Music, Book & Story by Steve Martin
Music, Lyrics & Story by Edie Brickell

Inspired by a true story and featuring the Tony®-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past—and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. With beautiful melodies and powerfully moving characters, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion. An uplifting theatrical journey that holds you tightly in its grasp, Bright Star is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful. (Source)

Special Summer Theatre Production

Tuesday

Written by Jewel Walker
Directed by Stephen Smith

A rooster crows, the sun greets the sky and a new day begins—it's Tuesday! In Jewel Walker's double Barrymore Award-winning miniature masterpiece, an ensemble of actors, without uttering a word, recreates the events of a single day on a single street in Anywhere, USA. Through mime, movement, and music, Tuesday embodies a nostalgic American past that still nourishes us today. This sparkling family theatre piece has charmed audiences off Broadway and across the country with its humor, grace, and heartfelt evocation of timeless values.

icarus Quartet

Like the mythological figure from which it draws its name, the half piano/half percussion icarus Quartet dares to fly towards the sun, aspiring to new heights of artistry. Larry Weng, Yevgeny Yontov, Matt Keown, and Jeff Stern are all celebrated soloists in their own rights, and together they have found a special chemistry and inimitable joy playing chamber music. Learn More »
