What are the advantages of the theatre program at KC?
The KC Theatre Department seeks to balance a rigorous production and performance schedule with a substantial and challenging academic experience. Small classes (average ratio - 1 to 16) allow each instructor to give students a great deal of individual attention, enhancing the probability of the student establishing good study habits and a higher GPA. Opportunities for immediate performance assignments are an additional plus in this department. For almost four decades the KC Theatre program has enjoyed an excellent reputation state-wide and the support of its administration and campus-wide faculty. Theatre students at KC also have the possibility of working as apprentices with the Texas Shakespeare Festival. A summer spent with the festival can provide students with the opportunity to work and study with artists from the professional theatre world.
