American River College - Theatre and Film
The Department of Theatre and Film at American River College offers a wide range of classes in all areas of theatre, along with an expanding Film Studies program. We also maintain a busy production schedule in a variety of performance spaces in our recently modernized and expanded facility. In addition to our season of full-scale department productions, we feature touring Children's Theatre productions, student-produced performances featuring scenes, improv and one-act plays, and an on-going partnership with the Fair Oaks Theatre Festival. This schedule provides broad opportunities for theoretical and practical training for our students, and an exciting and varied menu of theatrical fare for our audiences.

GUMBO is a theatrical variety show with a theme of "Aging". Full of heartfelt song, dance, and drama, this production is a great way to help students raise money to fund travel to the regional KCACTF competition.
Performances are in our small theatre STAGE 2 (Room 550) at the north end of the Theatre Building near the parking lot entrance. Seating is limited to 120 - first come first serve non-reserved seating.

Powerful magic is at work on this island where a tempest has been conjured to exact revenge. Yet, in Shakespeare's skillful hands, a shipwrecked nobleman and his daughter find the storm stirs up so much more than longed-for justice. Filled with humor, romance, and intrigue, it's no wonder Shakespeare's The Tempest is one of his most popular and enduring plays!
