Our comprehensive field of study enables students to develop a thorough understanding of the discipline of theatre – its processes, products, and its unique ability to capture with depth and passion the truths of the human experience. Curriculum courses educate students in ancient Greek theatre, script analysis, beginning acting, advanced scene study, vocal techniques for the actor, and Stagecraft.

We have two modern performance venues on campus: the 600 seat Whatley Center for the Performing Arts with a proscenium, revolving stage. This space has “state of the art” computerized lighting and sound. Our other space is an intimate studio theatre with flexible eating for arena style productions.

In the 2021-22 year, we will be producing two shows. The first is an all new, family-friendly radio play entitled A 1940s Christmas Carol. Our actors include NTCC students and staff, local area high schoolers, and community members. This hour-long show will be performed on December 2, 3, and 4, 2021. Evening shows begin at 7:30 and there will be one matinee on December 4th at 2:30 pm. Tickets may be purchased at the door or online.

Our second production will be in April, 2022. Auditions will be in February, 2022 and are open to everyone. Play title TBA.
