Beyond developing artistic skills, theatre helps students to refine skills in collaboration, critical-thinking, creative problem-solving and effective communication. Drama classes at colleges of DCCCD may include introduction to theatre, stage movement, stagecraft, makeup, costumes, acting, voice for the theatre, theatre history and introduction to cinema.

Drama courses are listed under the four-letter rubric (course prefix) DRAM. Note: Drama is the official rubric name, although individual colleges may list courses as Theater or Theatre.


North Lake College's newly remodeled Performance Hall is the main home for both our drama performers and an accomplished technical theatre program. A smaller Arena Theatre hosts more intimate productions. NLC drama students perform, or work backstage, several times a year. All NLC drama productions are free and open to the public.
