Learn and Perform


Brevard’s Theatre program offers a hands-on, experiential approach to learning production, acting, writing, stage design, and lighting. This comprehensive approach builds a foundation for students to discover their passion and direction, then nurture it through personalized artistic training. Students will perform and rehearse in the nationally-recognized Porter Center for Performing Arts, network with guest artists, and present work at professional auditions and conferences.
