Over the past two decades, the GTCC Theatre Program has presented plays ranging from tragedies such as the classic Greek play Oedipus the King to modern comedies such as The Odd Couple.  Part of the Creative & Performing Arts Department, the theatre program is housed in the Koury Hospitality Careers Center building on the GTCC Jamestown campus. Theatre facilities include the Fine Arts Theatre (a two-story, modified black box space), Costume Shop, Scene Shop, Dressing Rooms, Rehearsal Hall, Prop and Scene storage spaces, and Dressing Rooms.

One of the key goals of the program is to engage and inspire students to become active participants in the theatre arts.  Graduates have gone on to careers in every aspect of the theatre profession.  Courses offered range from acting and vocal training classes to production-oriented courses such as stagecraft, makeup and costuming.  (Additionally, the Program is proud to announce a new partnership with the North Carolina Shakespeare Festival.  Select students will be provided the opportunity to serve as production interns with the Festival.)

The GTCC Theatre Program integrates the following core values into our educational endeavors:

•    GTCC Theatre values creativity and artistic integrity;
•    GTCC Theatre values inclusivity and diversity;
•    GTCC Theatre values collaboration and ensemble teamwork;
•    GTCC Theatre values plays of all types and from all historical periods;
•    GTCC Theatre values positive theatre-going experiences for our audiences;
•    GTCC Theatre values stewardship of campus theatre facilities and resources;
•    GTCC Theatre values drama as an integral part of a healthy college community.
