Theatre Curricula

​There are two important elements to a successful Theatre program and career: ensemble and process. Our unending belief in the importance of ensemble in both the academic program and the production process is the cornerstone of our philosophy and curriculum. We believe respect for all members of the ensemble is essential. The performing arts are a process, an unfolding, a revelation, a lesson in now. To be an effective and productive participant in the theatre program at Broward College, you must be willing to:

  • Take on responsibility
  • Strive to embrace self esteem
  • Be a contributing member to a team
  • Conduct yourself in a professional manner at all times

Courses revolve around the art of acting and producing a performance, with associate’s degrees offered in Theatre Performance and Technical Theatre. Our curriculum offers instruction that can prepare you for a bachelor’s degree program, and has resulted in former students getting accepted to theatre programs at the New World School of the Arts, Marymount Manhattan College, Florida International University and Florida Atlantic University. Courses you will enroll in as a Theatre student include:

  • Acting I, II, III
  • Acting on Film
  • Stage makeup
  • Introduction to voice
  • Introduction to theatre and lighting design

Several acting instructors are members of the Screen Actors Guild and Actors’ Equity Association.
Performance & Production Opportunities
Broward College is home to two performance arts venues utilized by the Theatre Department: The Fine Arts Theatre and Bailey Hall, both located on Central Campus in Davie. At the end of the semester, your studies may culminate in a production held at one of these facilities. Continuous performances are also available as a member of the Theatre student club, 4th Wall.
