Theatre Program


Please visit our Auditions Page.

Follow your passion for acting. Lay the foundation for your career in theatre. In the Douglas College Theatre program you’ll learn skills that apply in every workplace: effective communication, leadership and ensemble tools, team-building, and most importantly, self-knowledge and confidence.

The intensive two-year full-time program provides you with professional training and education in five key areas: Speech, Movement, Acting, Production, and Theatre History.  In your second year you will work closely with students in the Stagecraft and Event Technology program to mount four major theatre productions.


  • Set the foundation for a career in Theatre.
  • Earn your Diploma of Performing Arts in Theatre in only two years.
  • Work with passionate faculty who are experienced, professional, theatre, film, and television artists.
  • Gain university-transferable credits.  Graduates often transfer to full Bachelor Degree programs at universities both in Canada and internationally: UBC, SFU, University of Wales (UK), University of Alberta, Circle in the Square (New York),  Neighborhood Playhouse (New York), and more.
  • Explore the unique opportunity to transfer to the University of Wales (UK) and complete your Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in one year of performance-based training.
