About Theater Arts Program and Classes

The study of Theatre Arts/Drama requires creative technical and performance skills that benefit students in their individual relationships with others in social and artistic environments. Students selecting to major and minor in Theatre Arts/Drama frequently choose this area of study for three reasons: (1) to enter the professional fields of theatre, film, televi- sion, radio, and modeling; (2) to enter communication fields in teaching, business, industry and law; (3) to pursue personal goals or leisure activ- ity in community events.

Opportunities for careers in theatre arts/drama are found in acting, theatre lighting, costume design, set production, scenery design, scene painting, television production, theatre production management, stage management, teaching and directing.

Fall 2018 Production

Cabrillo College Theatre Arts Department presents Euripides’ TROJAN WOMEN . The play takes place in the immediate aftermath of the ten-year Trojan War. The Greeks infiltrated the city hidden inside a giant wooden horse, which the Trojans took to be an offering to the gods. Troy falls to the Greek victors and as the play opens all Troy is to be burned, and the Trojan women have become the spoils of war, soon to be taken off to be slaves of the Greeks.

In this new version, Brendan Kennelly gives the play a twentieth-century edge. The women are usually seen as passive victims but Kennelly draws them as strong, active, resolute and shrewd. Direction by Sarah Albertson with set design by Skip Epperson. For tickets, go to cabrillovapa.com.
