Student Centered learning is a hallmark of the College of Charleston and in no Department is that more true than the Department of Theatre and Dance!  Theatre and Dance students aren't just numbers - but close partners in an artistic community formed and shaped in the classroom, in the studio and in our productions.  They study with a passionate and dedicated faculty in small classroom settings and through the course of creating our varied production seasons.

During the 2014-15 school year, Department of Theatre and Dance productions will include "The Bacchae" by Euripides, "Bread and Circuses" by recent CofC Theatre graduate Edward Precht, "Out of Control" choreographed by the Dance faculty, "Assassins" by Stephen Sondheim, "Blithe Spirit" by Noel Coward, "Home on  the Mornin' Train" by Kim Hines,  "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by William Shakespeare and "Chapel Moves" choreographed by the Dance majors.    View more information, performance schedules and find links to purchase tickets on-line.
