About Theater Arts Program and Classes

The study of Theatre Arts/Drama requires creative technical and performance skills that benefit students in their individual relationships with others in social and artistic environments. Students selecting to major and minor in Theatre Arts/Drama frequently choose this area of study for three reasons: (1) to enter the professional fields of theatre, film, televi- sion, radio, and modeling; (2) to enter communication fields in teaching, business, industry and law; (3) to pursue personal goals or leisure activity in community events.

Opportunities for careers in theatre arts/drama are found in acting, theatre lighting, costume design, set production, scenery design, scene painting, television production, theatre production management, stage management, teaching and directing.

Written in 1939, with the Great Depression in America’s wake and war on the horizon, The Time of Your Life by William Saroyan takes place in a San Francisco waterfront saloon, where the inhabitants strive to keep their hopes, dreams and dignity alive while coping with uncertainty and social unease. The first play to win both the Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, it’s a comic drama and a bittersweet reminder to live life to the fullest, while we can.
