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.
Beyond earning an Associate degree in Theatre, students can obtain excellent
course transferability to universities. All at the base of majestic

"The Boys from syracuse"
a great success
The COS Theatre and Music Department's spring musical, The Boys from Syracuse, written by the famed team of Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart was a big hit. It was enjoyed by over a thousand students from local elementary and high schools during our matinees, and our evening performances were also well attended.
"The amazing set, the music, the songs the energy, the timing, the variety--excellent quality. We enjoyed your production immensely! It was of standing ovation quality to be sure."Josh C.V. Knutila
"I saw your play, "The Boys from Syracuse." The play was amazing. I loved the part when the boys got mixed up that was so cool and the part with the sock puppets that was hilarious and I loved the song "Sing for your Supper." Thank you for putting on an awesome play!"
