Built in 1977, the Drama Music Building at Santa Barbara City College is a state-of-the art training and performance facility in which actors, musicians, technicians and craft people can both learn and test their skills in the performing arts.

The Theatre Arts Department at Santa Barbara City College offers a variety of programs of study and experience suited to the needs of the serious theatre student, as well as those students who wish to include theatre arts as part of their liberal arts education. With curricula in Acting/Directing, Design/Lighting, Costuming and Technical Production, the program provides an intensive two-year course of study that prepares Theatre Arts majors for transfer to a four-year college or university - ready to do advanced, upper division work.
