Students shine in Theatre program
The associate in arts degree with a concentration in Theatre from Windward Community College is the premier professional actor training program on Oahu.
Our skilled faculty are current theatre professionals with connections in LA, New York, Seattle, London and Beijing. We focus on nurturing our students’ craft and ensuring that they have every opportunity to grow as humans and artists, and set their feet on a real career path.
Top-tier conservatory training for aspiring performers, with a mission to spotlight local and Native Hawaiian artists and productions.
Students receive actor training in multiple methods and practice their craft on stage at Palikū Theatre. We offer a serious grounding in the core skills of voice and movement, certify students as actor-combatants with Dueling Arts International and connect them with career performers, agents, and casting directors. Our alumni include several working professionals across all tiers and disciplines in the performing arts industry.
WCC’s capstone Study Abroad program to the UK gives actors the chance to train with some of the best in the business, collaborate with the Royal Shakespeare Company, as well as provides opportunities to audition for top tier drama schools in London. So far, each student we’ve trained who has opted to audition has been accepted to one of the most respected drama schools in London—proof positive of the efficacy of our work.
A career in performance takes hard work and proper training. Interested students can get the preparation they need at Windward for the incredibly affordable price of community college tuition. What are you waiting for?
