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.

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 Professors of English Gina Gennari and Eartha Holley, 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.
