Theater is such an important part of a liberal arts education and I think, while it can be very entertaining, it can also be enlightening and thought provoking.
From acting, stage production, costume and set design to house management, the theater arts program at St. Petersburg College empowers students to explore their creativity and hone their stagecraft.
Since its resurgence in 2011, SPC's theater program has drawn rave reviews for its work, including a significant collaboration with American Stage on the production of WIT. Two instructors have been honored with awards and SPC alumnus Russell Andrade recently performed in Sweeney Todd.
Our theater facilities range from the 500-seat Clearwater Arts Auditorium to the Palladium Theater in downtown St. Petersburg. The college also has forged strong community ties with American Stage Theater, Jobsite Theater, free Fall Theater and other local companies, giving students access to a variety of theater experiences.
