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.
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, student theatre productions are being presented virtually through the spring 2021. Please check back here or follow us @TheArtsatDCCC on social media to learn of any updates or rescheduled events.
Spring 2021 Theatre Production
"Behind the Mask: Coping with COVID"
A Spring Collaborative Theatre Project with First Person Arts
Date: Saturday, April 17, 2021 at 7 p.m.
Where: Online via Zoom
About the Project
In a collaborative production with Delaware County Community College and First Person Arts, Philadelphia’s premiere storytelling theatre company, students and faculty will share their experiences coping with the stress this pandemic year has put on mental health. These experiences will be shared using multiple artistic mediums. Delaware County Community College counselor Renee Council will be on hand to comment on the issues our stories discuss and provide resources for anyone struggling with mental health issues. Please join us for an evening of shared experiences on this important topic.
About First Person Arts
True, personal stories are the raw materials of our practice. First person art includes storytellers practicing across multiple disciplines (i.e., theatre, memoir, visual arts, spoken word, dance, etc.) from the point of view of someone expressing or sharing events that he or she is experiencing or has experienced; and, those working to accurately depict people, places, activities and events. At First Person Arts, they help people develop their own true, personal stories for performance and personal growth. Learn More »
