Welcome to the Theatre Arts Department
Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival Awards Westmont College's "The Pirates of Penzance"
Welcome from the Westmont College Theatre Arts Department, and the Westmont Festival Theatre!
We have a comprehensive curriculum, including courses in acting, choreography, directing, dance, dramatic literature, theatre history, theatre technology and design. Not only do we wish to develop a broad and rich knowledge of the theatre, but we are committed to studying the art form in the light of the heritage and principles that inform our faith.
Our production seasons are always provocative and exciting. We stage a diverse range of interesting work, including great classics, dance performances, contemporary plays, original works, and musicals. Recent seasons have included Much Ado About Nothing, Animal Farm, Peer Gynt, The Servant of Two Masters, Beckett Plays, The Bald Soprano, Othello/Measure for Measure, Jane Eyre, The Skin of Our Teeth, Frankenstein, Antigone, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and The Saint Plays. We strive to create bold, exciting theatre, and have developed a reputation for stagings with interesting interpretations and excellent acting.
Whether you are a prospective or returning student, or a community member interested in our productions, we hope you will find what you are looking for on our website. We welcome you to visit us here in Montecito, and to contact us at any time.
