Take a break from lecture classes and lengthy assignments and take theatre classes
for college credit! The SCC Theatre Department offers opportunities for students who
want to continue participating in any or all of the theatre arts, and SCC is a good
place for a student to try something new. This is a place to activate the imagination,
build friendships, exercise your creativity, and practice your problem-solving skills.
Theatre class can be a place of self-discovery and confidence-building.
Music and Theatre Production Scholarships, which are available each year, can cover
up to three-fourths of your tuition.

Film Appreciation (THEA-2130) 3 Credits Through this course, students will view various films and film clips, gain competency
in the critical analysis of film and will develop their understanding of cinema history,
genre, and production methods. Offered both face-to-face and online.
Theatre Production (THEA-1850/1860) 2 Credits This is a good class for those students who want to design and/or build stage sets,
build or design costumes, create and run sound effects, and hang and operate stage
lights. The end product is a staged, rehearsed performance presented to an audience.
SCC-Beatrice has its own workshop with tools, lumber, gadgets, a sewing machine, fabric,
furniture, props, and costumes. All materials for this class are provided for the
students; there are no textbooks to purchase. This course can be repeated. Students
do not need to be registered for the course to participate
Basic Acting (THEA-1140) 3 credits This includes improvisation, acting exercises, and in-class performances (rather than
public). It is a great class for the beginning actor or for anyone who would like
to broaden their horizons, sharpen their imagination, and improve their stage presence
in everyday life. Develops confidence and poise, and it’s a lot of fun.
Theatre Practicum (THEA-1851/1861) 1, 2, 3 credits This course allows students to create an internship designed specifically for the
individual in which they do all their “classwork” with the Beatrice Community Players
or any Lincoln theatre organization. Students gain practical experience in any or
all aspects of theatre production as they work on whatever production is coming up
in the season. This course can be repeated.
