Do You Have a Passion for Theatre?
As a theatre student at GCSC you will have the opportunity to work on stage and behind the scenes. We will help you develop your craft and prepare you for transfer to university or for professional auditions and interviews. Write, direct, or perform in your own production as part of our award-winning student theatre organization, GCSC Players.
You will have the opportunity to work back stage on a national tour of a Broadway musical at the Marina Civic Center through our partnership with Bay Arts Alliance. Many of our current students get their first professional credits while studying at GCSC due to our strong professional relationships with Seaside Repertory Theatre and Emerald Coast Theatre Company.
