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.

"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.
