Newly- renovated and first-rate Owens Auditorium will become the home base for students who wish to pursue acting or learn the technical attributes of the entertainment industry.

The Associate in Fine Arts (AFA) in Theatre degree has been designed for students who wish to transfer to one of the UNC Bachelor in Arts (BA) in Theatre programs under the Associate in Fine Arts in Theatre to Bachelor in Arts Articulation Agreement. There are eleven BA-granting institutions within the UNC system whose focus is on theatre. The agreement enables students who have graduated from Sandhills with an AFA in Theatre to complete a common list of courses that meet the entrance requirements at all of the BA in Theatre programs at UNC institutions.

Sandhills will offer an Associate in Fine Arts in Acting for those bitten by the performance bug. Theatre students will develop their acting skill and even hone dance and voice skills.

Others would rather be behind the curtain. For them, SCC will offer a technical program where they will learn stage craft and production. This will open opportunities for students to become a stage manager, theatre manager, or a lighting or set designer.

There will also be a theatre Career and College Promise pathway for local high school juniors and seniors.

Students will have the opportunity to perform in and help produce major plays and musicals each year in our 600-seat Owens Auditorium.
