A form of theatrical performance that combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting, and dance. The story and emotional content of a musical – humor, pathos, love, anger – are communicated through the words, music, movement and technical aspects of the entertainment as an integrated whole. Although musical theatre overlaps with other theatrical forms like opera and dance, it may be distinguished by the equal importance given to the music as compared with the dialogue, movement and other elements. Since the early 20th century, musical theatre stage works have generally been called, simply, musicals.
Directly tied to our outstanding musical theatre program each spring the Theatre Arts Department produces a major musical theatre production in the Campus Theatre.
The Campus Theatre is a proscenium theatre located on the campus of Fullerton College. Built in the early 60's, this Theatre has 536 seats and is only 17 rows deep. As the primary performance space on campus, the Campus Theatre is utilized year round for many college events including Theatre Arts Department productions and Music Department concerts.
Our wheelchair accessibility section is located approximately twenty feet from the stage and about fifteen feet off center. These seats will also accommodate one companion folding chair if space permits. Additionally, most seating requires the navigation of stairs located in the lobby. However, side doors are available for both wheelchair and stairless entrances. Check in with the lobby staff upon arrival for assistance with these needs. When purchasing tickets in advance please let our Box Office staff know of any such needs. Assistive Listening Systems devices are available upon request, check with the lobby staff upon arrival.
Located inside the 1300 building on the southwest side of the college campus. The lobby and entrance is located on the south side of the 1300 building through the series of exterior glass doors.Map and Directions
