The Theatre Department at Collin College strives to introduce students to the aesthetic and analytical elements of theatrical productions. It offers studies in the principles and practices of acting for stage and screen, stagecraft, costuming design and construction, theatre marketing, technical theater production and stage management.

The labs provide students with "hands-on" experience through performances, as well as shop and crew duties. Our studies include contemporary theories and classical aspects of theatrical studios.

The Theatre Department offers a full curriculum of theatre study including work in beginning and advanced acting, voice and diction, stage and lighting design, costume design and stage makeup, theatre history and dramatic literature, and specialty courses in circus skills, stunt work, musical theatre, stage combat, stage management and acting for the camera.

Students and community members interested in theatre performance are encouraged to audition for the plays performed each year. Auditions are announced both on and off campus.

Our former students are working in theatre, television and film around the world!!!

Collin Theatre's faculty have experience in professional stage and motion picture work, including such projects as the Broadway musicals AIDA, WICKED and Sarafina!; rock tours with Michael Jackson, Aerosmith, Jimmy Buffett, Van Halen, Michael W. Smith and Hank Williams, Jr.; films such as The Alamo, Boys Don't Cry, Young Guns, American Outlaws, JFK, Cry-Baby, Broadcast News, Carried Away, Flesh and Bone, The Stars Fell on Henrietta, Selena, Walking Tall, and the TV miniseries Murder in The Heartlands.

The theatre facility is comprised of three separate performance spaces including the 350-seat John Anthony Theatre, the 120-seat Black Box Theatre and the intimate ALT Lab Theatre. The multi-million dollar complex also houses two dressing rooms, a theatre box office, a costume vault and construction shop, a scene and paint shop, in addition to acting/directing classroom spaces.
