The Cuesta College Drama Department is dedicated to initiating students into the artistic process through the medium of theatre. It is our mission to provide students with a training and production program that will prepare them technically, conceptually, and personally to create their own work, and to meet the far-ranging demands of both contemporary and traditional directors, playwrights, choreographers, composers, and filmmakers.

Our goal is to facilitate the development of young artists who have the skill, vision, courage, and will – as well as the personal, social and conceptual consciousness – to create new theatre art.
