The Theatre program is committed to connecting students with professional opportunities during and after their time at HCC.

Students pursue a variety of opportunities in acting, directing, management, design, technical production, and front-of-house.

The Theatre Production A.A.S. degree offers students the opportunity to learn, train, and gain the specialized technical and artistic skills required to execute contemporary theatrical productions. The Theatre Performance A.A. degree is designed to provide a broad liberal education as well as specialized professional training that emphasizes performance skills.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by: Tennessee Williams

One of the most successful plays of our time. "…a play of tremendous dramatic impact…enormous theatrical power." —NY Post.
In a plantation house, a family celebrates the sixty-fifth birthday of Big Daddy, as they sentimentally dub him. The mood is somber, despite the festivities, because a number of evils poison the gaiety: greed, sins of the past and desperate, clawing hopes for the future spar with one another as the knowledge that Big Daddy is dying slowly makes the rounds.
