Mission Statement: The COS Department of Theatre is dedicated to the advancement of the theatre arts, through traditional study and performance, and to the development of new theatrical ventures. We prepare students for further study and for an ever-changing profession.
Theatre Arts Department here at College of the Siskiyous offers a
lower division transfer program, as well as, training in
technical theatre. The biggest advantage to studying theatre here at
COS?--our small department. Because of our size, opportunities
abound for students to be involved in all aspects of our productions. The
COS Theatre Department produces two main stage productions per year. Other Theatre Department
offerings include student directed theatre productions and visiting
artist workshops. Regardless of your aspirations, COS' Theatre Department
adds experience and training which can serve students for a career in
performing arts or help give them the confidence, poise, oral communication
skills and ability to tap their creative imagination that will serve
them for a lifetime in whatever profession they choose.
