The Lansing Community College Department of Theatre provides students with hands-on learning opportunities by hosting a variety of performances. Theatre majors are part of an ensemble, taking classes with the same group of students for two years with a focus on Stanislavski’s system of acting. Supplemental courses in stage combat, makeup, theatre history, auditioning and acting for the camera are offered.
The LCC Department of Theatre utilizes both the Dart Auditorium and the Black Box Theatre for their performances. Each semester culminates in a performance at the Black Box Theatre, which provides an intimate experience between cast and audience. This contrasts with the Dart, which can seat up to 480 people, and hosts numerous performing arts events, guest speakers, and civic activities throughout the year.
The LCC Department of Theatre provides the community affordable theatre performances, as the majority are free or reasonably priced.
