The Bakersfield College Theatre Department puts on a variety of plays throughout the year. BC also hosts the Kern Shakespeare Festival each year. The Kern Shakespeare Festival, which is wildly popular and critically acclaimed, puts on 2 or more productions each year. Usually they choose one hilarious comedy and one stirring drama. The productions feature a mix of professional actors, local amateurs, and students.
Bakersfield College also rents its facilities to outside groups, and thus hosts other arts-type events (music, theatre, and more).
