About the RRCC Theatre Department

RRCC has the only fully developed Theatre Arts program in performance, production and theatre technology in the State of Colorado.   Our program offers courses leading to an Associated of Arts in Theatre Arts, and an Associate of Applied Science in Theatre Technology and certificates in Stagehand Basics, Stagecraft, Costume Basics, and Costumes & Fashion. In addition, we also engage in numerous partnership projects and classes, both on campus, and within the community.

The courses offered through the program emphasize training and hands-on experience in all facets of theatre, including performance and technical work. These classes are taught by working, theatre professionals who share their talents and expertise in the classroom as well as within the community at-large. Completion of the coursework is also appropriate for students pursuing an advanced education in Theatre Arts or teacher certification at a four-year institution.

The production aspect of RRCC Theatre Arts has consistently presented high quality performances (including an award winning productions in 1992, 1996, 2002, 2003, 2010) featuring students, staff, faculty and members of the community. These RRCC Theatre Arts productions were selected as Featured Showcases in the regional five state competition offered through the Rocky Mountain Theatre Association. In addition, RRCC Theatre Arts productions have received critical acclaim in the Rocky Mountain News and the Denver Post, as well as other newspapers in the Denver Metro area.

"I love the RRCC Theatre Program.  The faculty is fantastic and through this program I have been introduced to my most influential mentor.  I have also really grown as an actor through the wonderful classes offered here.  I love that I am able to take the lessons I have learned and put them toward my career and future!"
