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.
Spring Musical: The Producers!
The COS Theatre and Music Programs are excited to announce they are producing the comedy classic The Producers. The Producers is a musical based on the Mel Brooks’ 1968 movie of the same name with the music and lyrics also by Mel Brooks. The book is by Brooks and Thomas Meehan. It is the story of two theatrical producers who scheme to get rich by overselling interests in a sure to be Broadway flop: “Springtime for Hitler.”
Rehearsals are underway. It is a show that is testing the limits of our abilities here in the theatre department with no less than 13 sets and 150 costumes! We have an extremely strong cast of veteran actors who will be singing and dancing their hearts out. Emmy Award-winning Choreographer, Wendy James is both directing and designing the choreography for the show. This will be a show to remember.
Tickets are $12 General Admission and $5 Students and Seniors. To reserve tickets please call the Public Relations Office at 530-938-5373. If you have questions about the production, please call Theatre Program Head, Neil Carpentier-Alting at 530-938-5206.
