Theatre Transfer PathwayASSOCIATE IN ARTS, 60 CREDITS
Riverland's Theatre Department is a high-energy, performance-oriented program. Four mainstage productions are performed each academic year: one classic musical, one contemporary musical, one comedy (modern or classic) and one drama (modern or classic). Students are encouraged to get involved in all areas of theatre production, including but not limited to acting, stage managing, set building, and design. Strong academic offerings provide challenges in and out of the classroom.
Travel-study courses such as Big Arts in the Big Apple and London Dash give students the opportunity to experience professional theatre in major cities around the globe. Each year, Riverland students attend and compete at the Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Region 5 Festival. Students also have the opportunity to participate in Summerset Theatre, which has performed on the Riverland campus since 1968. Summerset mounts several main stage productions between June and August and engages students as actors, crew, and in paid staff positions.
