  • Once Upon A Mattress 2The Theatre program provides an excellent opportunity for students who plan to transfer to four-year colleges and universities to complete bachelor's degree in Theatre or dramatic arts education. With two to three main-stage productions and as many as four one-act plays produced each year, your chances of stage time as a freshman is significantly higher than at most four-year colleges and universities. In addition, our Improv Team performs several times throughout the year.
