This option prepares students for transfer to a four-year college with a major in Theater and Educational Theater. This option serves as a basis for careers in television, motion pictures, stage, and commercial or educational dramatic endeavors. Students are given the opportunity to contribute to and work on SCCC productions and workshops. In addition, the students are given the opportunity to attend professional productions off-campus.
The objectives of this program are to:
Stage a scene or monologue.
Develop and perform on stage a character from a script or from improvisation.
Work as part of an ensemble to perform in and/or to do the technical preparations to produce a play.
Identify critical aspects of dramatic literature and theater history.
Students may need to first take some developmental courses that are designed to prepare students for the college-level coursework in their academic plan. This may add to the students’ completion time. The number of credits students take each semester will determine when the student will complete his/her program of study.
