High School Theater
The Theatre Department strives to provide a comprehensive introduction to the various dramatic arts as well as production techniques and processes. High school level theatre classes will emphasize acting and technical technique, college level aesthetic analysis, and producing a variety of plays for the stage. Students will be encouraged to participate in all areas of production, including an array of backstage opportunities. They will become familiar with the job hierarchy and the multitude of positions in a professional theater organization. Students will leave the department with an understanding of the academic theatre world, what it means to be a theatre artist, and the wide variety of theatre opportunities that are available.
Graduation Requirement: Students must successfully complete at least 20 credits in the visual and performing arts (Art, Music, and/or Theater courses).
