Theatre: Past Seasons’ Productions

A typical season of productions in the Greensboro College Theatre Department will include:

  • Broadway style musical
  • Full-length comedies or dramas
  • Classical or Shakespearian pieces
  • Dance productions
  • Seasonal offerings
  • One-acts produced solely by students who serve as directors, designers, technicians, and actors for each other.

Additional experience comes from involvement in touring shows, children’s productions, and American College Theatre Festival competitions. Over their four years, students will participate in a wide range of theatrical experiences.

Student recognition on the state, regional and national levels and consistently great theatre reviews confirm the high quality of productions in the Greensboro College Theatre Program.
