Drama

Department Overview
The Theatre/Digital Film curriculum is designed to give majors a thorough exposure to all aspects of the theatre arts and digital video. The department's philosophy is to offer a sequential program emphasizing "back stage" as well as "on stage" skills, integrated with digital video experience. Transfer students from the theatre program do well in a university setting because of the broad general education they receive at Pierce College. Digital film production at Pierce College Theatre is an excellent opportunity to collaborate with fellow theatre/film students, other departments, the campus community and the greater Pierce County area. Digital film production/technical theatre students collaborate across the curriculum. Students in acting classes are captured on digital videos produced by the digital film making classes. Digital film production/technical theatre students help the digital film classes as production crews for the films. English students write the films' scripts. Film subjects include campus and community life, from dental hygiene to oceanography and basketball to early childhood education. Films that focus on community awareness and needs are particularly encouraged. Live theatre is a vital part of the Pierce College Theatre experience. The college presents at least one major production each fall, winter and spring quarter. Auditions are open to anyone who wants to reap the benefits of educational theatre. Cast and crew have the opportunity to work with highly trained directors and designers with full backstage support. Pierce College Theatre stages plays that are artistically challenging for technicians and actors, as well an exciting for audiences. Students and volunteers can participate in every aspect of the production: acting, set design and construction, promotion, wardrobe, makeup, props, stage management, lighting, sound and special effects.
