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.

Delaware County Community College and Hedgerow Theatre Company present the summer theatre production of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night! Take a seat on the sprawling lawn of the College's Marple Campus on a warm evening for our 2022 summer theatre production! Student actors from Delaware County Community College and professional actors from Hedgerow Theatre Company come together on our outdoor stage for Shakespeare's timeless classic Twelfth Night this August!
Twelfth Night is a tale of twins Viola and Sebastian separated in a shipwreck. When Viola disguises herself as a man she falls in love with the narcissistic Orsino, who is in love with Olivia. Olivia then meets Viola (dressed as Cesario) and falls in love with her! Directed by Associate Professor of Drama Stephen Smith with music by retired DCCC faculty member Joe Nocella, this production of the comedy of love and confusion, misdirection and illusion, will be set in the French Quarter of New Orleans.
After the production's time at the College, it then continues its run at Hedgerow Theatre August 12–28! Learn more at hedgerowtheatre.org
