Under the Spotlight

The Drama Department is committed to providing a comprehensive theatre education to our students and bringing the results to the community through vibrant, thought-provoking productions. We currently produce one production per semester.

Career Outlook

Many students who are interested in theatre are eager to begin their careers. The Theatre Arts Certificate program will give them sufficient training to be able to join the professional work force without obtaining a B.A. They will obtain a wider range of knowledge and skills associated with the theatre, increasing their chances of working in the theatre in some capacity, whether it be in acting, stage management, or technical theatre. The practicum requirement also gives them practical experience working on an actual production. Students who wish to pursue an A.A. or B.A. may still choose the Communication Arts/Theatre Option program.


Out of an abundance of caution amid the COVID-19 outbreak in the region, all remaining on-campus Arts events have been cancelled until further notice. Please check back here or follow us @TheArtsatDCCC on social media to learn of any updates or rescheduled events.

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)

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.
