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.

Image of Othello

Othello

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Stephen Smith

The Shakespearean tragedy of Othello, originally set in 16th century Venice, is reimagined for the modern stage. Othello, an army general, has secretly married Desdemona, a daughter of the prominent senator Brabantio. Iago, a lower-ranking officer, is passed over for a promotion by Othello, and the jealous Iago begins a malicious campaign against Othello. The story that follows is one of deception, betrayal and repentance. Delaware County Community College Professor of Psychology Marc Henley and Associate Professor of Drama Stephen Smith will join the student cast and crew for this exciting production of a timeless classic.

PLEASE NOTE: The November 10th Performance Has Been Cancelled
