Theatre

Play Out Your Dreams On or Behind the Stage

 
Directors, actors, stage managers, set designers, costume and makeup artists undergo a tremendous process to entertain an audience. From constant rehearsals to set, light and costume re-designs, there’s no doubt that the process of producing quality theatre requires disciplined, collaborative professionals. With Broward College’s Theatre program, you will gain valuable knowledge and skills that will lay the foundation for a successful future in acting or theatre production.

Theatre Curricula

​There are two important elements to a successful Theatre program and career: ensemble and process. Our unending belief in the importance of ensemble in both the academic program and the production process is the cornerstone of our philosophy and curriculum. We believe respect for all members of the ensemble is essential. The performing arts are a process, an unfolding, a revelation, a lesson in now. To be an effective and productive participant in the theatre program at Broward College, you must be willing to:

  • Take on responsibility
  • Strive to embrace self esteem
  • Be a contributing member to a team
  • Conduct yourself in a professional manner at all times

Courses revolve around the art of acting and producing a performance, with associate’s degrees offered in Theatre Performance and Technical Theatre. Our curriculum offers instruction that can prepare you for a bachelor’s degree program, and has resulted in former students getting accepted to theatre programs at the New World School of the Arts, Marymount Manhattan College, Florida International University and Florida Atlantic University. Courses you will enroll in as a Theatre student include:

  • Acting I, II, III
  • Stage combat
  • Stage makeup
  • Introduction to voice
  • Introduction to theatre and lighting design
