Theatre

  • 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.

    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-1850/1860/2850/2860/2880) 1.5/3/4.5 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.

    Introduction to the Theatre (THEA-1110) 4.5 credits
    This is taught face-to-face and online. In this class students read five plays, attend and critique a live performance and learn about the people and the aspects of theatre production, history and play analysis.

    Basic Acting (THEA-1140) 4.5 credits
    This includes improvisation, acting exercises, and in-class performances (rather than public).

Develops confidence and poise, and it’s a lot of fun.
