Theatre Arts & Film
GCC is home to an award-winning theater arts program. GCC students are regularly recognized by the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival for acting, set and costume design, and lighting and audio skills.
We invite the community to enjoy theatre performances by students, faculty and visiting artists throughout the year.

Non-majors and Recreational Interest
Anyone with an interest in theatre arts is invited to audition for theatre roles, as either cast or crew. Audition information, dates and times are posted throughout the year.
The Associate in Arts, Fine Arts – Theatre degree is designed for students planning to transfer to four-year colleges and universities, who must prepare to meet selective admission criteria for programs such as the Bachelor of Fine Arts, which may have a portfolio or performance requirements.
