Department of Theatre and Dance

The Georgia College Department of Theatre and Dance not only prepares students for careers in both the professional and educational aspects of the field, but also gives students a personal and hands-on experience that is bar none. Students are challenged through courses and productions that emphasize imagination, passion, discipline and collaboration. 

The department also has a strong focus on engaging the community with the arts. Each season we bring a variety of performances to the stage to evoke emotions, create laughter and provoke the deep thoughts of the audience.
