Theater Productions

Students in Pre-K through Grade 12 have the opportunity to take part in the performing arts; time is designated as essential group learning to engage our students in the continued pursuit of unique talents, passions, and skills.  

All students have the opportunity to participate and expand their knowledge of acting, voice projection, stage presence, stage management, working the light and sound boards, and marketing. This is hands-on management of “How to put on a show!” all the while offering choice, a sense of accountability, a clear final goal, and taking a risk.
