The Theatre Arts Program is a dynamic theatrical training program that strives to prepare community college students in the arts of acting, directing, design, and stagecraft. We are dedicated to providing an atmosphere for exploration into this most immediate, collaborative, and compelling art form. The program offers classes at Sylvania, Cascade, and Rock Creek campuses and currently produces three mainstage shows each year. In addition, PCC’s Theatre Arts Program offers students the unique opportunity to "own" a production from start to finish: the annual Student One-Act Play Festival showcases new plays written, directed, acted, and designed by PCC Theatre Arts students.

Since 1979, PCC Theatre Arts has presented over 70 fully staged productions ranging across the dramatic, comic, and musical genres. Most of our shows are now mounted in the Performing Arts Center, a state-of-the-art theatre on the Sylvania campus. Because the PAC also serves as a rental facility, we are able to hire our students to crew rental productions, thereby giving them necessary and practical on-the-job training. Many of our students have gone on to find professional employment as technicians and actors, others to excel in four-year programs in Oregon and beyond.
