Join us for cutting-edge live performances by students enrolled in drama courses and community members every fall, winter and spring quarters.
Love, murder, and nuclear espionage converge in this noir comedy set in 1952. America is about to test the H-bomb, Eisenhower & Nixon are on the campaign trail, and I Love Lucy is the most popular TV series. Meanwhile, Senator Joe McCarthy's daughter just got engaged to a Soviet spy, and Boston detective Maggie Pelletier has to find out who dumped the dead guy in the Harbor. A zany look at love and cold war politics.

Applications for drama scholarships funded through the LCC Foundation are accepted once per year, typically in February, for the following year. An audition is required.
If you don't think you are ready for auditions or feel like it is too big of a time commitment, think about becoming involved in our Act One Drama Club that produces our performances.
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.
