Theatre & Film
Somerset Community College is home to a thriving, award-winning theatre community. This popular program at SCC allows students to pursue an Associate of Arts degree with an emphasis in Theatre Arts. Our Theatre program provides opportunities for both college and high school students, as well as members of the general public, to be involved in live theatre and video productions. From Teen Theatre to Community Outreach, there's much to explore! Please take the time to watch this short video from SCC’s previous Theatre Director, Steve Cleberg, about SCC's Theatre Department.
