Link to Kirkwood Community College

Theatre at Kirkwood combines academic courses, practicums and three annual productions to provide students with the background needed to transfer to a four-year college or university. When planning schedules, students should keep afternoons (after 3:30 p.m.) open for rehearsals.

Students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university and major in theatre can take related course work at Kirkwood as part of an Associate of Arts degree.
