Department of Theatre & 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.
