Theatre

Program Overview

A well-made production, be it live theatre or a skillfully crafted film, is not easy to do. But for some, the foundational skills needed for quality production design and technique is an appealing challenge.

If the arts of theatre and film have always held your interest, why not make a career of it? Our experienced theatre and film school instructors will teach you the world of technical theatre, how to work on professional stage productions and the art of filmmaking. Aside from the experience you’ll gain from theatre and film making, you will develop a portfolio of academic work to showcase throughout your artistic career.

Now’s the time to make it happen. Start your education in theatre today.

Students at any Maricopa Community College may need to complete courses at more than one of our colleges.
