If you’ve ever worked on a theatrical production, you know how dynamic it can be. Working in the performing arts - whether it’s acting, design or administration - requires you to use a wide range of skills and to solve complex problems. At SVC we have a program designed to help you develop skills to advance your study in the performing arts.
As with our other performing and visual arts programs, the Drama program at SVC is designed primarily to help students who are interested in beginning their study here and later transferring to a four-year institution. We offer a well-rounded introduction to theatre arts, including courses in acting, stage management, theatre history, and stagecraft.
While no direct transfer degree program in Drama is offered at SVC, students can pursue the Associate in Arts AA-DTA and work with their advisor for best transfer options.
Most coursework in the Drama program is not lecture-based, but highly practical, with lab, rehearsal and performance-based classes to help you develop skills in real-world settings. Students will gain experience working in a range of production facilities, from the state-of-the-art McIntyre Hall, to the more intimate Phillip Tarro Theatre and other venues. Productions are student-based and student-driven, using resources from on campus and around the community.
SVC’s Drama program will help you step out of the shadows and into the light, where you’ll get valuable experience to prepare you for a four-year program.
