Dramatic Arts Program

Midsummer Night's Dream 2018

Theatre—great stories told here. Audiences wanted.

Theatre lives in the present tense. It is always here and now. Whether the story is drawn from ancient Greece or set in some futuristic world of tomorrow, the sense of occasion and participation make it a communal event.

Centralia College boasts two state-of-the-art theatres: the 506-seat Margaret Corbet Theatre and an intimate 110-seat studio theatre, the Phillip Wickstrom Studio Theatre.

More than 150 productions have entertained and enlightened our campus and community since 1935 (see our production history). We invite you to attend an upcoming production or, if you're so inclined, take a class, audition or help us in some technical capacity. Like theatre itself, we're here to serve you.

A young William Shakespeare, early in his career, is suffering from writer’s block—until he meets the woman who will inspire him to pen the greatest love story of all time. This whimsical comedy—full of verbal wit and physical humor—is based on the screenplay by the same title. The Centralia College production recreates the allure of the Elizabethan era, transporting audiences to Shakespeare’s time and place by staging the comedy on a replica of the Globe Theatre.

Two rival gangs fight for control of the upper west side of New York City: the white American "Jets" and the Puerto Rican "Sharks". Their turf war becomes complicated when one gang member falls in love with his rival's sister. This musical theatre classic retells the story of Romeo and Juliet, re-envisioned for the 1950s on New York City streets. Leonard Bernstein’s award-winning score features the songs "Tonight", "I Feel Pretty" and the Puerto Rican-inspired “America”.
