The Theater program at Anoka Ramsey is solid. The shows are great. The experiences are unforgettable. The hands are more than capable for giving you the experience you need. You can’t go wrong. I am a bit biased toward the Theater Department. The Theatre instructors are personable, full of passion, and genuinely smart theater people. Also, the Music Department is underrated –no matter how much credit is given to them."
