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.

ARC’S PRODUCTION OF ‘CABARET’ SELECTED BY THE KENNEDY CENTER AS ONE OF THE FINEST IN A NINE-STATE REGION!

 Cast of Cabaret

Cabaret has been selected to perform at the KCACTF Regional Festival Feb 19-25 in Denver, CO. This is an almost unprecedented honor, especially given the fact that the other productions entered are primarily from universities, private colleges, and masters programs. Now ARC needs your help to make the trek over the Rockies to Denver, Colorado, the site of this year's festival.Your donation will help us pack up all of our set pieces, costumes, technical gear, and nearly 50 cast, crew and production team members and get over the Rockies to re-mount the production for the festival.

Help these students achieve their dream!

Breaking The Code


By Hugh Whitmore

Directed by Jason Long


An exceptional biographical drama about a man who broke too many codes – the eccentric genius Alan Turing who played a major role in winning World War II. He helped break the complex German code called Enigma, enabling Allied forces to forsee German maneuvers. No one knew how much was owed to him when he was put on trial for breaking another code: the taboo against homosexuality, the punishment for which would have devastating consequences. This play is about who he was, what happened to him and why. Rated PG.

The Beaux' Stratagem

By George Farquhar

Directed by Pamela Downs


The Beaux’ Stratagem, a wicked comedy written in 1707, follows the fortunes of two dissolute young rakes who have blown their fortunes, and hence journey to the English countryside to marry for money. They encounter a variety of obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a fervent French Count, a clever serving wench. The biggest obstacle to their scheme, however, is Love, who hilariously lies in wait for both.

CHARLOTTE'S WEB

Adaptation of E.B. White's Classic Story


CHILDREN'S TOURING SHOW




Tour Performances April/ May 2017


E.B. White's beloved children's tale is brought to life in this 50 minute children's show which finds the young farm pig Wilbur attempting to avoid a dire fate. Of all the barnyard creatures, Wilbur's staunchest ally is Charlotte, a thoughtful spider who devises an intriguing plan to keep the gentle little swine out of the slaughterhouse. Although Charlotte's efforts, which involve words written in her delicate web, seem far-fetched, they may just work. Other characters include a gluttonous rat, some wacky geese, a cantankerous sheep, Homer, Fern, the farmhand and more!











All Performances are in the ARC Theatre or Stage 2, except as noted.
