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.

GRCC Theater is my home away from home. No matter where you're coming from, the faculty make you feel like you're a part of the family.
