Skills used in theatre can apply to any career or profession.Creative thinking, teamwork, effective communication and problem solving are all life skills employers look for in hiring the most qualified applicants.

Unlike many state school and conservatory programs that might pigeonhole students into a singular area of theatre, we offer a broad experience that also shows you how gaining expertise in these areas can apply in other fields. Indeed, many students double major with theatre and another academic area, or gain skills complementary to their major by minoring in theatre.

Students have opportunities to act, design sets, hang lights, stage-manage, promote and even direct. Each of these hands-on learning experiences gives graduates insight into the theatre industry and also can transfer into areas like sales, education, psychology, communication and criminal justice. At WC, theatre productions are open to all students, not exclusively majors.

Summer opportunities for performance and participation are available through the Wilmington College Community Summer Theatre and Clinton County Kids & Company, an arts program for children and teens.
