What is the program about?

The theatre performance degree is designed as a university-parallel program for students to transfer to four-year institutions. The faculty and staff are theatre professionals with extensive experience in acting, directing, playwriting and choreography. Curriculum is based on skills required to enhance students’ performance including: voice, movement, character and script analysis, dance, auditioning and presentation. Successful students achieve real-world experience participating in our theatre productions in several performance venues. Students must pass all THE courses with a grade of C or better. As part of this degree program, students must complete the requirements of the Ohio Transfer Module in order to graduate.

Program Outcomes

  • Analyze a play's structure, character, themes and production values.
  • Demonstrate competency in at least two different areas within the field of theatre (Acting; Directing; Costume Design; Set Design; Lighting Design; Stage Management; Technical Direction).
  • Demonstrate competency with basic audition and performance techniques.
  • Evaluate the contribution of the director, actors, designers and technical crew to a live theatrical production.
  • Differentiate among major periods in theatre history.


Completion of this program guarantees completion of the Ohio Transfer Module (OTM). OTM courses are guaranteed to transfer to any public institution in Ohio on a course-by-course basis or in total.

Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.
