The NCCC Theatre Department prides itself on bringing new and exciting theatrical works to the community of Chanute. Theatre students at NCCC will be offered a wide variety of opportunities in and out of the classroom. Students who choose to continue to study theatre after attending NCCC will leave with a well rounded resume of skills. Small class sizes ensure one on one attention from instructors. Students are encouraged to experience all aspects of theatre: acting, directing, designing, and stage managing; an opportunity that is rare for freshman and sophomores! 
Classes Include 
Theatre Appreciation
Fundamentals of Acting
Advanced Acting
Theatre Workshop
Introduction to Design
Theatre History
Reader’s Theatre
In addition to the classes and productions, the NCCC Theatre Department has a club called the Panther Players.   The club often provides social gatherings and travel opportunities to view productions at other colleges as well as  professional theatres.  The department also participates in the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival Region V allowing students to perform and design for participating productions and attend the regional festival.
