About the Drama Program

Drama at Lower Columbia College offers courses designed to provide students with an understanding of the theatre and an appreciation of theatre, acting, technical theatre, and production experience through performance. Students develop the ability to express themselves in many ways: acting on stage, seminar discussion, play analysis, review writing, script interpretation, kinesthetic expression, and technical proficiency in set, costume, and light design.

One play is presented each quarter during the academic year. Participation is open to all students, college employees and members of the local community.

Students interested in acting can complete an associate degree or begin studies to transfer to a baccalaureate program. Drama courses can also be an important supplement for those who plan to major in the humanities or social sciences.
