Program Summary

The drama department at Hill College has a rich history of performance and scholarship.  Students are engaged in theatre history, acting for the stage, and design projects for classes and productions.  We are a small department, committed to the success of each student and seeking to provide a well-rounded theatre education for our graduates as they move on to four-year universities and careers.  The size of the department is an advantage for students, allowing them more stage time in productions and more individual instruction from faculty.

The Vara Martin Daniel PAC is a well-equipped modified proscenium stage with an auditorium that seats around 400 spectators.  There is ample opportunity both in the PAC and around the campus for exploring various aspects of theatrical design and production.  The theatre has four lighting bars with Source Four instruments and an Innovator lighting board, as well as a multi-channel sound system.  The Performing Arts Center opened an addition to our building in spring 2014, giving the music and drama departments much needed classroom, storage, rehearsal, and workshop space.  The theatre gained two dressing rooms, costume, prop, and tool storage, and a large workshop, giving students the space and opportunity to work on designs for classes and productions.
