The Performing Arts - Theatre Program offers a broad range of courses that allow for transfer into either professional theatre schools or four-year institutions. All students in the program are required to audition for both HACC Theatreworks and the Theatre for Young People productions. Since the requirements of senior institutions vary, it is essential to choose an intended transfer institution as soon as possible and carefully follow the program described in that college’s catalog. The complete program is only available during the day at the Harrisburg Campus. Some of the required courses are available at the Gettysburg, Lancaster, Lebanon, and York campuses.
