Modes of Instruction

Click here to learn more about the modes of instruction offered at Kaskaskia College.

Kaskaskia College Theatre is a small program where students learn all aspects of theatre production under the advisement of one faculty member who has decades of experience in theatre working onstage and backstage. Since our program is small we depend on the talent, skills, and dedication of each student to be involved. Each year students participate in two mainstage productions. Students are asked to take on leadership roles in production management and design as well as acting onstage. Our goal is to produce well-rounded practitioners of theatre and pillars of the community. Students also serve as ambassadors for KC Theatre at Kaskaskia College campus and community events.

KC Theatre is a member of Delta Psi Omega, a national theatre honorary society, where members engage in campus, community, and cultural activities throughout the year. Each academic year, students have the opportunity to serve in an officer role (President, VP, and Business Manager) and work directly with a faculty advisor. The dedication of each student is the lifeblood of our theatre community. 

Kaskaskia College’s Associate of Fine Arts (AFA) in Theatre Degree provides students with the first two years of study toward a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre at a four-year college or university. Students will take the fundamental courses common with most undergraduate four-year theatre programs and then can continue their studies in specialized areas (Acting, Musical Theatre, Design and Technology, and Theatre Studies). Kaskaskia College has articulation agreements in place with several surrounding universities in the region.
