Actors, Designers, Writers, Technicians – whatever your passion, we have what it takes to provide you with the training and experience you need to successfully pursue your dreams. We believe in Learning By Doing .

It’s your passion – it’s ours, too.
Why Mt. SAC Theater?
The Mt. San Antonio College Theater Department is committed to the concept of Learning by Doing , not just reading about it or listening to lectures. We provide hands-on experience for actors, technicians, and writers in an active department where students learn their craft from working professionals.
We have what it takes to provide students with first-class training and production experience!
Our shows are produced in our state-of-the-art facility with two theaters. Our mainstage theater, the Sophia B. Clarke Theater, is a beautiful proscenium stage that seats over 400 audience members. The Studio Theater is a flexible black box space that brings the actors and the audience together for a more intimate theatrical experience.
Our faculty and staff members are the heart of our program. We are professional, award-winning directors, actors, designers, and playwrights who are working in the industry. Each of us are dedicated to sharing our talent and experience with students to train, guide and nurture them toward their professional and academic goals.
Mt. SAC Theater – We’re Making a Play For You!
