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.
