From your first year on, opportunities seem endless to perform, direct, design and more in the York College theatre program. Join a program that allows students to discover who they are and what type of theatre artist they want to become.
It starts with a curriculum designed to challenge you to be a well-rounded artist-scholar, with skills learned in make-up, costume design, set design and more; you’ll also be well-versed in dramatic literature from around the world. Student-directed plays give our students the chance to get hands-on experience and learn on the fly — is there any better way to learn theatre? — about all that goes into a production. Internships and independent studies give you added flexibility to specialize and get real world experience. Top all of all off with your “classroom”: the sublime Waldner Performing Arts Center. For aspiring actors, directors, scene designers, costume designers, and other theatre professionals, the stage is set for success from day one.
