You’ll thrill to such American classics as “Over the Rainbow,” “You Made me Love You,” “Easter Parade,” “But Not for Me,” “The Man Who Got Away,” “On the Sunny Side of the Street,” “Meet Me in St. Louis,” “That’s Entertainment,” “Where or When,” “Born in a Trunk,” “Yankee Doodle Boy,” “Come Rain or Come Shine,” “Strike up the Band,” and many more!

Let the cast of four talented singer/dancers take you on a magical journey from the sound stages of Hollywood to the stages of Broadway. “Babes in Hollywood” is sure to delight audiences of all ages.

Greensboro College’s Department of Theatre seeks to provide a strong foundation in theatre while allowing the student to emphasize in a particular area such as directing, acting, or arts administration.

The coursework is integrated with the production work to provide a better understanding of the many facets of the theatre. Required participation on stage or backstage on all theatre productions allows the techniques and theories that are examined in the classroom and the laboratory to be tested in a performance setting.
