In addition to class work, you have the opportunity to participate in four productions, performed in both our main stage Performance Hall and black box Arena Theatre spaces.

Students can interact with a wide network of Richland College theatre alums who are working in the entertainment industry as performers, designers, technicians, and theatre educators.

The Richland Theatre Department provides a state of the art sound system and robotic lighting, so students get real world training in all phases of production.
