KCC Theatre


The newly renovated Binda Performing Arts Center on an early morning, fall 2014.

We seek to emphasize collaboration, creativity  and commitment in the productions and courses we offer to Kellogg Community College students and the Battle Creek/Kalamazoo area at large.

KCC Theatre currently offers two productions each school year: a nonmusical “straight play” in the fall and a musical in the spring. The production season seeks to offer opportunities for KCC students and community members to gain practical and artistic experience both onstage and backstage. We hold open auditions for each show and welcome anyone interested in donating their time and energy in the areas of set construction, stage lighting, stage management or costuming and makeup.

As a part of KCC’s Arts and Communication Department, the courses we offer in Acting, Film Production, Theatre Appreciation, Children’s Theatre, Stagecraft and Specialized Studies are aimed at two primary types of students: those looking to transfer to a larger program of theatrical performance or technical study and those seeking an engaging way to broaden soft skills that will increase and enhance confidence, communication, leadership and overall personal marketability in the professional, nonartistic world. We understand and believe in the power of performance at KCC, and we are here to demonstrate what theatre can teach while entertaining at the same time!

If you are interested in learning more about opportunities onstage, backstage or in the classroom, contact Brad Poer at poerb@kellogg.edu.
