Program Philosophy

The theatre department strives to instill a profound appreciation of the arts, and to provide practical experience for students to enhance their career paths upon graduation.  In their two years at IWCC, students will have the opportunity to work on musicals, classical texts as well as contemporary dramas and comedies. Our graduates will be self-directed learners who will pursue challenges with an open mind, a creative spirit, and a love for exploring their own theatrical passions.

The Facility

The theatre department is housed in the Arts Center on the campus of Iowa Western.  Breathtaking views and a pleasant environment surround this beautiful state-of-the-art facility, which includes an acoustically excellent performance theatre with a 45' wide proscenium opening, seating 665.  Arts Center
