About Our Program

If you love to perform, build scenery, or direct, then HFC’s Theatre Arts program is for you. Our program is designed to provide you with a sound basis for understanding the theory and practice of the theatrical arts. By the time you finish our program, you will have the knowledge and experience to continue studying at a four-year theatre program or conservatory.

We offer more theatre classes than any two-year school in Michigan, as well as a robust, all-year theatrical season of four shows featuring classics, experimental, musical, contemporary, and devised productions. Through our classes and productions, you will gain knowledge and experience in a number of areas including acting, production management, scenery, lighting, sound, costuming, makeup, properties, special effects and technical support. You can also choose an advanced specialization (“mini major”) within the degree in the areas of technical theatre, acting, and directing.
