Alma College Theatre provides Alma students with a structured production experience in acting, directing, design and technical Theatre.

Alma College Theatre produces four productions each in a wide variety of styles. Our three full-length productions range from modern plays to classic comedies. The fourth regular season production is our One-Act Play Festival, which is put on by our Theatre Honorary Alpha Psi Omega. This festival is directed by upper level students and is completely student run.

We offer a full range of theatre classes for both majors and non-majors in acting, directing, design, technical Theatre, stage management and Theatre history. Many students also take advantage of independent study work directly associated with their focus within their major. This work is usually connected with our production and are usually focused on areas such as theatre management or audition techniques.

Alms College Theatre depends heavily on student involvement, and our students take great pride in maintaining high production values for each and every production. Over the course of each season, students are involved in acting, directing, and stage managing. There are also students who focus on designing scenery, lights, costumes, sound and props. They also work on the numerous crews required to bring each show together.
