In drama courses, both majors and non-majors build communication & creative problem-solving skills, confidence, and empathy.
The drama courses offered at SFCC include beginning and intermediate acting, stagecraft, theatrical design, introduction to the theater, and rehearsal & performance. Students gain practical experience in performance, technical theatre, theatrical design, the business of theatre, and stage management that prepares them to pursue a successful career in the theatre. As mentioned above, the opportunity to participate in drama also helps all students to develop important life skills that can serve them as they pursue any career.
The Drama Program is vital to all SFCC students as it offers cultural enrichment, bolsters students as they develop the growth mindset necessary to become lifelong learners, and builds a sense of empathy that prepares students to live responsibly in an increasingly global civilization. Many students at SFCC are also members of our club, Bigfoot Drama, which gives them the opportunity to learn more about how theatre can and should serve the changing needs of our diverse community.
