Theatre Arts at LA Mission College

Although Theatre Arts are fairly new at LA Mission College, we have quickly become one of the most high profile programs on campus. With the September 2017 opening of our brand new state-of-the-art Arts, Media & Performance building, we can now offer theatre courses in many areas, all culminating in the presentation of one fully-produced show each semester. Guest artists from the New York and LA theatre communities join our highly-skilled professors to work hand-in-hand with students to create professional productions. 


Who can be a Theatre Arts student?

We have a wide variety of students who bring a wide variety of experiences to LA Mission College. Some come with previous theatre experience; many are working on productions for the first time. Regardless, we treat every student equally, demanding high-quality work in a collaborative setting.


What theatre facilities does LA Mission have?

Why Theatre Arts?

Theatre training serves as a gateway into many different aspects of the entertainment industry, many of which are based in the Los Angeles area. We train our students in the common practices and processes of theatre, which prepare them to work in film and television, themed entertainment, music concerts, and trade show and corporate event production.


Fall '19 Show

Dead Man's Cell Phone by Sarah Ruhl

An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man—with a lot of loose ends. So begins this wildly imaginative comedy by MacArthur Genius Grant recipient and Pulitzer Prize finalist Sarah Ruhl. A work about how we memorialize the dead—and how that remembering changes us—it is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world. 

LA Mission College Theatre is seeking actors, designers, musicians, and production crew to bring the surreal and darkly comic world of Dead Man’s Cell Phone to life. 

Auditions and interviews will be held in the first week of the fall semester. No prior theatre experience is necessary. Visit to sign up for auditions and interviews now.
