PERFORMING ARTS: THEATER
THEATRE IS ALIVE AND VITAL AT CAYUGA
The Auburn Campus features two different performance spaces; the Irene A. Bisgrove Community Theatre and the Black Box Theatre. Harlequin Productions is the award-winning performing company where students can experience every facet of producing live theatre. In addition to Harlequin’s two productions a year there is an active theatre scene in the Auburn community where students can increase and further hone their skills.
FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT
Cayuga’s newly renovated 424-seat Bisgrove Theatre features some of the latest technologies in lighting and sound equipment. Students will have instruction and hands-on access to all of this state-of-the-art gear, as well as a Black Box Theatre where students can experiment in an intimate environment as they learn their craft. Two 8-station dressing/make-up rooms and a modest scene shop complete the complex. On campus there is also a full working television studio where students can work in front of and behind the camera.
Courses include: Introduction to Theatre, Introduction to Technical Theatre, Basic Acting, Shakespeare, The London Theatre, and Creating a Character.
This concentration is designed for students who plan to transfer into theatre programs at four-year colleges and universities, students who are interested in a theatre background as a basis for careers and majors in the liberal arts or in business, and students who are interested in obtaining practice working in theatre as actors, directors, and technicians.
