The Theater Department is a thriving place where students train and audition with award-winning faculty and staff.

Spectrum Theater houses student group GRCC Players, as well as two community theater groups: Grand Rapids Actors' Theater and Jewish Theater GR.

Each year, GRCC-trained actors receive Grand Awards, given in recognition for outstanding community theater.
