Theatre Arts

COURSE: Students will combine elements of Theatre History, Acting Skills, Scene Design, and Theatrical Careers with performance opportunities throughout the course. Students will present monologues and partner scenes in class, practice improvisation, and rehearse for two large scale productions, one per semester, including our newest Raptor Shakes Festival.

BROADWAY JUNIOR: Each year we present a large scale Broadway Junior musical production. The cast is made up of students in grades 4-8 and is open casting. All students are given a role, but an audition is required for placement. This production is led by a team of student directors in grades 9-12. These students must pass a rigorous application and interview process, and work closely with the faculty director throughout the production.

BROADWAY MUSICAL: This is an auditioned cast performance of a large scale, full length musical, and is open to students in grades 6-12. While students must pass a vocal and reading audition to get a role, additional opportunities exist in lighting, stage crew, orchestra musicians, and ushering.
