The CLC Theatre serves as a cultural hub for the Brainerd Lakes area, and enjoys a 40+ year tradition of providing year-round theatre entertainment. Last year, over 250 students, community members, and guest artists collaborated together and performed for over 10,000 theatre patrons.

CLC offers numerous classes in performance (acting, directing, children's theatre, creative dramatics, improvisation), technical theatre, and theatre studies (introduction to theatre, stage to screen, theatre history).  What's learned in the classroom is taken directly to the stage with CLC Theatre's production program. Central Lakes College now offers a Theatre Performance Associate in Fine Arts (A.F.A.) degree.
