Theatre Program

Grayson College’s Theatre Department is home to approximately 30 to 40 theatre students who enjoy a busy production schedule of four shows per year, and a host of other related activities. Our students follow the Associate of Arts degree plan.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Drama Department is to provide students with a general knowledge of all areas associated with theatre so that the students can either continue their education at a four-year college/university or pursue a professional career in theatre, meanwhile endeavoring to provide quality productions and services to a diverse community.

The Drama Department endeavors to:

  • Offer courses in performance and production as well as give practical experience in theatre
  • Produce at least four fully staged productions a year
  • Serve the community by offering plays appropriate to all ages and a diverse season
  • Prepare students for professional employment in theatre by providing them the resources necessary to obtain internships and apprenticeships with professional theatres while they are still students
  • Expose students to a variety of theatrical styles and productions through an association with the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival
  • Within the theatre curriculum, the faculty introduce the fields of acting, directing, and designing as places of equal opportunity for all races and genders.
