WILLIAMS: I am afeard there are few die well that die in a battle; for how can they charitably dispose of any thing when blood is their argument?

About us:
The mission of the Department of Theatre Arts at Folsom Lake College is to provide the people of the region with theatre that speaks to their lives and experiences and that challenges their expectations. We strive to enrich the community by providing performing arts opportunities for the people of the region as actors, designers, and technicians in a fully-supported educational environment. It is also our goal to provide a theatrical learning experience that gives students of the art a strong background in American classics, as well as both the classics of Europe and the works of modern authors writing today.

In fall of 2010, Folsom Lake College expects to complete construction of a multi-million dollar, three-theatre performing arts complex. It will house the college’s Performing Arts program, but most importantly it will be the home of The Falcon’s Eye Theatre at Folsom Lake College. We look forward to the community joining us in this exciting venue in the future!
