In accordance with Governor Wolf’s November 23 directive, the College has made some operational changes, effective November 30, that will allow us to complete the fall semester safely. Visit dccc.edu/coronavirus to access more information and student resources.
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.

About the Project
Now more than ever before, we are seeing how one story has the power to connect the world. First Person Arts, in collaboration with Delaware County Community College, will produce a multidisciplinary digital storytelling event this fall. The program will feature true and personal stories of the Delaware County Community College community, expressed through multiple artistic disciplines on the theme “How Has Racism Inspired You?"
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 »
