Spring on the York College campus

Theatre

Perform, direct, design and more in a blended theatre program.

From your first year the opportunities are endless to perform, direct, design and more in the York College theatre program. Join a program with an individualized blend of academic and practical theatre courses.

It starts with an integrated approach to practice and research including stagecraft, performance, design, dramatic literature and theatre management. Small class sizes and individualized attention allow each student to establish a close relationship with faculty and mentors. Classwork is immediately integrated into our eight main stage productions each year.  From costume and prop design to stage combat and dance to devising and performance to scenic painting and welding set pieces, hands-on learning starts from day one.

Additional opportunities include studying abroad, internships and working with guest artists. Students and recent graduates are interning and working at the Eugene O’Neill Center, Walnut Street Playhouse, CenterStage, Serino Coyne and Colorado Shakespeare Company.

Get to know the Theatre program at York College, where students can get experience in all aspects of putting on a stage production. Download a transcript of this video.

Join THE430: Devised Theatre and Performance students as they take us on a journey to an abandoned greenhouse located in a small town just like ours.

Taking place during a single night of Aphra Behn’s life, the current spy and future (first) female professional playwright, is trying to foil a plot to murder the king all the while writing a new play for great American actress Nell Gwynne. One critic wrote that this show is “a bawdy, hilarious and whip-smart literary sex comedy that turns into a door-slamming quick-change farce.” Professionally Directed.
