The Palomar Theatre Arts Program cultivates the potential of theatre to make an impact on the lives of practitioners, audiences, and communities. Through our technique classes, academic offerings and season of productions the program emphasizes the power of theatre to transform individuals and society through imagination, empathy, analysis, and action. The program empowers students to follow the discipline of craft while taking risks and developing their own artistic sensibility. Critically-acclaimed productions range from the classical to the experimental, often serving as a focal point for campus-wide dialogue on social issues. The program also emphasizes collaboration with the other disciplines in the Performing Arts Department and colleagues in the Art Department. Visit the Theatre Arts section of the Palomar College Catalog and Palomar’s online class schedule at www.palomar.edu for updated information and/or contact Palomar Performing Arts Academic Department Assistant Kimberly Loya at (760) 744-1150 ext. 2316 in PAC-122. Transfer students should consult the four-year college or university catalog for specific requirements or see a Palomar College counselor.
