Department Description

Our department seeks to serve Anoka-Ramsey Community College students by providing quality theatre learning opportunities for majors and non-majors alike.  The Theatre Associate of Fine Arts degree curriculum includes a wide range of courses with particular emphasis on performance and technical theatre.  We seek to serve the college and engage the community by producing varied and thought-provoking plays throughout the academic year.  All Anoka-Ramsey Community College students are welcome to participage in theatre classes and productions regardless of prior experience.


The Anoka-Ramsey Community College Cambridge Campus performance area is a proscenium-style, intimate theatre with 145-plus seats and wheelchair access for four patrons.  The stage supports a variety of theatre experiences and offers students a challenging environment in an intimate actor/audience setting.
