The theatre program helps students with a general interest in theatre to interact with people in the working world. Theatre majors should plan their program with the requirements of their selected four-year college in mind.

Students who follow the program are assured opportunities each semester during the two-year program. Students may apply directly to the department for a scholarship by contacting Gary Mosby at 

Coordinator's Statement

Welcome to the Department of Theatre at Kansas City Kansas Community College. The Department of Theatre is rooted in the liberal arts tradition.

We offer both an Associate of Arts Degree in Acting and an Associate of General Studies in Theatre Technology and Design.

Our program is one of inclusion and noted for its professional atmosphere, its comprehensive nature, and its close faculty/student working relationship. In the department you'll have the benefits of a small, close-knit program within the environment of a comprehensive, urban community college with courses taught by some of the best professional actors, designers, and technicians in the Kansas City area.

Theatre students are most likely to succeed when they understand completely the theoretical, historical, and practical elements of the theatre. 

We have a very active Drama Club that produces two mainstage plays; one in the fall and one in the spring.

These productions are fully realized by the members of the drama club and only mentored by the faculty.
