If you love theatre and want to be part of a vital program where you will have opportunities, even as a first year student, to work on and off stage, then the Theatre major at York College is for you! We nurture artist-scholars who are well read in dramatic literature, who understand the social, historical, and performance contexts of that literature, who appreciate contemporary performance and design, who think critically, who master discipline-specific skills, and who make compelling artistic choices on stage. With independent studies and internships, seniors are directing and designing on our stages and in the community while actors are performing in plays and musicals in our multiple spaces. This is a program that allows students to discover who they are and what type of theatre artist they want to become.
Students in the Theatre major have access to many opportunities on and offstage in the Waldner Performing Arts Center (WPAC). Learn more about the WPAC.
